New Theatre Royal has an exciting opportunity for you to sponsor a seat in our newly refurbished building.

Open to everyone, you can use your seat as a unique gift, as a dedication to a loved one or to promote your business – the possibilities are endless!

You will find that you are in good company as we already have seats dedicated to many local notables and artists supporting our campaign, including acclaimed singer-songwriter Beatie Wolfe, Wave 105 presenter Rick Jackson, and Gioia Minghella, from the famous family-run Minghella Ice Cream company. 

To sponsor a seat in our beautiful Victorian theatre will cost just £215 and will entitle you to a dedicated plaque on a seat of your choice, for the life of the seat!  

There are 200 seats available and all money raised will go towards the maintenance and running costs of the theatre.

To take your seat, contact 023 9264 9000 or email to discuss seat availability and the engraving of your plaque. 

Payments can be made as a single payment or three consecutive monthly instalments.

Please note: Sponsoring a seat does not include admission to individual performances or events or guaranteed allocation of that seat for a particular performance. Seat choice is based on a first come first served basis.
