Name a Seat
Our venues have been creating magical moments for our audiences for over 250 years with world class performances and artists inspiring people on and off our stages.
Why not celebrate the times that matter at Norwich Theatre Royal or Norwich Playhouse by naming a seat. This unique gift helps share and capture memories with friends and family, from celebrating a first performance, a special occasion, in memory of a loved one or as a gift to someone special in your life. You can now also dedicate a brand new seat at Norwich Playhouse and become woven into the fabric of our award-winning venue.
Your gift will be acknowledged on your chosen seat and will be a lasting presence in the venue’s auditorium, where unforgettable moments are experienced by thousands.
You can add yours or a loved one’s name or dedication as a way of celebrating these moments whether you want to say ‘Thank you’, ‘Congratulations’ or ‘I remember you’.

Naming a Seat does not guarantee that you will be able to book this seat as part of your ticket purchases, or give you priority booking. If you would like priority and discounted booking please become a Friend of the theatre.
Please do be aware that if your monthly direct debit donations are stopped short of 25 payments, or the full amount of £250, we will contact you directly to discuss. Where payment is not made in full to the value of £250 we will remove the seat plaque and reallocate the seat.
You can choose to have a name and dedication of up to 90 characters on your plaque, including spaces and punctuation, on a 17cm x 7.5cm plaque which will be placed on the back of your chosen seat for Norwich Theatre Royal and Norwich Playhouse.

My parents were theatre lovers and I could think of no better memorial than two seats at the Norwich Theatre Royal where they enjoyed many happy hours together. Every time I visit the theatre and book their seats it’s a wonderful reminder of our times together” Janice Soanes – Circle C34 & C35
“I saw my first opera at the Theatre Royal, it was Don Giovanni – it blew my socks off” Stephen Fry – Circle F1
