Name a Seat

The loyalty of our supporters means a great deal to us. If Derby Theatre has meant something to you or a loved one in return, Naming a Seat is the perfect way to engrave your name on our legacy whilst supporting our community.

For £300 your name will be engraved on a plaque and affixed to a seat in our auditorium, where it will remain for ten years. The seat you name is up to you, so if you always reserve the same seat in the circle with sensational acoustics, you can now make it yours in name! You can also add a personalised message to your plaque. We'll honour your support with an exclusive backstage tour for you and your family, and give you the opportuntiy to take home a photograph in your very own seat.

Every £1 you give us will be matched by Arts Council England. If you choose to Gift Aid your £300 donation, it will be worth £675 to Derby Theatre. Every penny with your name on it will find its way back into the community, and into the lives of a future generation of theatre lovers.

"Derby Theatre has always been a welcoming and cosy theatre delivering excellent and innovative productions across the breadth of theatre. The loss of someone vibrant and irreplaceable is difficult to mark but the theatre seemed a fitting place to leave a message in the form of a plaque, and we were proud to be the first!" -  Castle Donington Surgery

"Having spent the last 45 years in British theatre and being a local lad, I was very honoured to be asked to support the Name a Seat fundraising campaign at Derby Theatre." - Robert Linsday, Actor
