Name a Seat

Want to make a lasting impression for you or a loved one? Your dedication will be engraved onto a brass plaque, which will be affixed to an auditorium seat of your choice in either venue for 25 years.

For a minimum donation of £250, you can name a seat in your own name, as a gift to celebrate a special occasion, in memory of a loved one or on behalf of your school, group or company.

As a valued Name a Seat donor you will receive a presentation certificate unique to you and an opportunity to come and see your plaque in situ.

Your plaque will be in good company; celebrity supporters of our Name A Seat scheme include David Hasselhoff, Christopher Biggins, Barney Harwood and Su Pollard.

Whatever your personal reasons for naming a seat your donation will make a real difference, ensuring the Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall continues to play an exciting role for future generations.

You can name a seat online or download our application form and return it with payment to: Development Manager, Theatre Royal, Theatre Square, Nottingham, NG1 5ND

For help and advice, please email us or call 0115 989 5628.

To assist you in choosing your seat, you can download seating plans for both venues here.

Please note that seats are subject to availability and do not include any booking rights or any advanced booking privileges. 

“I am so thrilled because this is one of the most beautiful theatres in the country” Christopher Biggins, Seat J18, Theatre Royal 

“I hope that the person who sits in this seat will cry, will laugh and will experience emotions and realise that we are all put on this earth to be happy and that’s what theatre’s about” David Hasselhoff, Seat J15, Theatre Royal
