Support the historic Guildhall Theatre and adopt a seat for £200 for 10 years.
Celebrate a special occasion, dedicate to a memory of someone special, support a local charity or add your name or your organisation's name to the supporters of the beautiful Grade II-listed Guildhall Theatre.
We will acknowledge your support with a brass plaque with your name, which will be attached to one of the seats in the auditorium. You also will be listed on website as a seat sponsor (unless you wish to remain anonymous).
All seat sponsors will be entered into a quarterly draw to win 2 tickets to a show (one entry per seat).*
Local actor Steven Blakeley (ITV1's Heartbeat, Derby LIVE's Much Ado About Nothing and Broken Hearted) is patron of our Sponsor a Seat campaign.
"I am very honoured to be involved in the Sponsor a Seat campaign at the Guildhall Theatre. This historical building, in the heart of the city, is a place I have had immense pleasure to both work in and visit. It is alive with history and performance and is an asset to a city that is rightly proud to have such a building and venue.
Like any venue of its nature it needs funds to sustain it and what better way to raise money than to ask people to sponsor a seat in the Guildhall auditorium? The names of individuals and groups will be added to the building's long and prestigious history and help ensure it has a long and prosperous future".
