Named Seats

The refurbishment of the Cottesloe Theatre has allowed us to develop the auditorium; improving sightlines, adding flexibility, creating additional and more comfortable seating, and improving the foyer spaces. Over 200 donors have named a seat in the new Dorfman Theatre by donating £5,000+ to NT Future.

We have now reached our fundraising target for NT Future, but there are still seats to be named* in the Dorfman if you would like to make a donation to the National Theatre.

£5,000 – We will name a seat in the Dorfman Theatre for you.

£10,000 – We will name two seats in the Dorfman Theatre for you.

£25,000 – We will name two seats in the Dorfman Theatre for you and we would like to include your name on the front of house Major Donor Board.

* Due to the flexible nature of the Dorfman auditorium, seats will not always be in the same place and some seats will not always be used for every performance. You are welcome to name a seat in the Pit, Circle or Gallery.

Acknowledgments may have up to 30 characters (including spaces), e.g. John Smith or Mr & Mrs Smith. Inscriptions will bear your name or that of whomever you choose for at least 15 years.

To name seats (£5,000+) please call the Development Department on 020 7452 3218 or email support@nationaltheatre.org.uk.
