This is a unique opportunity to dedicate a seat at Shanklin Theatre in a location of your choice (subject to availability) with your special or personal message.

You can “Name a Seat” for a minimum donation of £100 that lasts for ten years.

Your special or personal message will be engraved onto a plaque which will be affixed to an auditorium seat of your choice, thus making it a very special part of the Theatre’s history.

You can Name a Seat:

  • In your own name or family name.
  • In memory of someone special, a family member or a loved one.
  • As a gift to someone special celebrating a life event, a birthday, wedding, anniversary, retirement or even the birth of a baby.
  • In the name of a group, company, association or business etc.

In addition, you will receive an official certificate of support from the Theatre confirming your seat location. The “Name a Seat” scheme will help towards our ongoing restoration programme.

Your money will ensure Shanklin Theatre stays open not only for the local community but also for visitors to enjoy our shows and local theatre productions.
