Business Sponsorship of a seat

We invite you to mark the launch of The Barn Theatre by naming a seat. In return for your one-off donation of £200, we will engrave your name on a plaque and attach it to a seat in the auditorium until 2023.

Your donation will go to the heart of what we do. We are passionate about creating outstanding theatre for all to enjoy, providing a training ground for new talent, and inspiring our community to take part in Barn Outreach.

A few things to consider:

  • If you are a business, you need to supply your company name and web address.
  • Seats are subject to availability.
  • Seat naming is until 2023. Plaques will appear on seats from April 2018, thereafter at monthly intervals. You will have first refusal to continue to name your seat after this initial five-year period (at a further cost).
  • Naming a seat doesn’t guarantee that your chosen seat will be exclusively available to you when purchasing a ticket for a show.
  • Please note that a few seats may be removed for some shows, depending on seat configuration.
