Lifetime Achievement Award for directors Stuart & Kevin
Long standing Theatre Directors Stuart Malkovich and Kevin Lynch have today received recognition of their commitment to the borough with a Greater Yarmouth Lifetime Achievement Award.
The special award is given as part of the annual Tourism & Business Awards, organised by the Greater Yarmouth Tourism & Business Improvement Area, which recognises outstanding businesses within the tourism sector.
Having taken over the Pavilion in 1994, Stuart and Kevin have spent the past 25 years building a loyal audience and working tirelessly to reverse the decline of the 118 year old original Edwardian venue.
On hearing news of their nomination, Stuart commented "We were gobsmacked and surprised to have even been nominated, so a massive thank you goes out to the whole BID community for thinking of us."
"We're very proud of Gorleston and Great Yarmouth and love the business that we're in."
The Pavilion was also nominated in various other categories during the awards ceremony, including 'Best Business Website' and 'Community Contribution Award'.
Trustee Alex Youngs said of the award, "It's a long overdue recognition for two of the hardest people working in the borough and thoroughly deserved. We're extremely lucky to have these two at the helm."
