Adopt a Seat

We’re inviting you to Adopt a Seat in The Lyric Auditorium. It’s a fantastic way to celebrate you and your loved one’s enjoyment of the theatre while ensuring our future and your part in it.

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 name one for yourself or team up with friends, family, or workmates. Either way, you’re sure to become part of the furniture.

Not sure which seat to choose? There are currently over 50 seats taken but we’ve got over 1,000 left to pick from! We’d love to show you around the auditorium to help you pick the best seat for your plaque – simply email to arrange a visit.
