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 have a favourite seat, you can 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
