Adopt A Seat


This way please

Introducing Theatre Royal Plymouth’s Adopt a Seat: a fantastic new way to celebrate you and your loved ones’ enjoyment of the theatre. You’ll also be ensuring TRP’s future and your part in it.

Adopt A Seat

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll explain all…

As part of our 40th anniversary celebrations, we’re inviting you to Adopt a Seat in The Lyric auditorium. You can name one for yourself or team up with friends and family or workmates. Either way, you’re sure to become part of the furniture.


Dedicated to you

You might be looking to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, a retirement or remember someone special. You can dedicate your plaque to celebrate your love of theatre or share a message of remembrance or one of thanks. You could even share a line from your favourite show.



You can choose to buy a plaque for two years or five years. Here’s a rundown of what you can get:
• Choose your favourite seat in the auditorium
• Your dedication will be inscribed on a plaque for the back of your chosen seat
• You’ll get a commemorative certificate
• You’ll be invited to ‘meet your seat’ for the perfect photo opportunity
• At the end of the two or five years, you’ll have first refusal on renewing your chosen seat


How much does it cost?

Two year seat adoption
Non-members £250
Members (Friends Members and above) £210

Five year seat adoption
Non-members £600
Members (Friends Members and above) £500

Adopt A Seat

Does Adopt a Seat mean I own the seat?
No. Your dedication will be on the seat for two or five years. The seat will still be open for members of the public to book.


Can I Adopt a Seat for longer than five years?
Yes. We’d love to talk with you about longer-term options. Please get in touch today.


Do I get priority access to the seat?
We can’t guarantee that you will always be able to book your seat. If you are a Member of TRP then your priority access will make it easier to ensure that you are at the front of the queue when shows go Onsale.


Can I visit my seat?
You can arrange a trip in to see the seat by getting in touch with the team.


How long can my plaque inscription be?
Each plaque can contain up to 30 characters per line (each plaque contains two lines).
