‘Inspiring People’ Seat Campaign

A special chance to name your own seat in our new Theatre and Recital Hall or pay homage to someone who has inspired you.

Students come to the Academy from all over the world. Their exceptional talents deserve the best facilities. Our dazzling new Theatre and Recital Hall will open in 2018. They will provide world-class performance spaces, and will significantly increase access for our ever-expanding and diverse audiences.

Inspirational supporters who responded to our initial fundraising appeal have ensured a confident start on these vital new facilities. Now we need your vision and generosity to enable us to reach our final fundraising target.

We are inviting you to name a seat or a group of seats in our new Theatre or Recital Hall. It could bear your own name, or you could dedicate the seat to someone who has inspired you. Perhaps your mentor or teacher? Someone you have known well or have admired from afar? A living legend or a musician who flourished many generations ago? A member of your family or a friend…?

There are 304 Theatre seats and 100 Recital Hall seats available for these special dedications.

  • A gift of £5,000 will secure a named seat in the Theatre Stalls.
  • A gift of £3,000 will secure a named seat in the Theatre Balcony.
  • A gift of £1,500 will secure a named seat in the Recital Hall.
  • A gift of £1,000 will enable you to join our group of Orchestra Pit Supporters.

All named seats (gifts from £1,500) will secure a plaque with your name and the person to whom you are dedicating the seat. Your dedication will also feature in all programmes during the opening year of the new Theatre and Recital Hall and – should you wish – on a special dedication page on our website.

We hope that you feel inspired to help.
