Seat Out to Help Out

Whether you’re coming to the theatre or staying at home, you can help us by paying for seats which current restrictions prevent us from putting on sale.

We depend on income from selling tickets to put on the shows that you enjoy, but under current COVID-19 regulations we are only permitted to sell 35% of our seats. We are campaigning, with others, that we move to a position of being able to sell up to 55% of our seats, but we simply cannot plan to put 100% of our seats on sale for any performance before September 2021.

You can help us to bring you live theatre and keep audiences safe by donating to keep a seat warm – for a single performance, for a week, for a month, or even until we reopen!

Performance Warmer: £25

Keep a seat warm for a single performance.

Week Warmer: £200

Keep a seat warm in the theatre for seven days.

Month Warmer: £600

Keep a seat warm in the theatre for a month.

Season Warmer: £2,000

Keep a seat warm in the theatre for a full season. Your seat will be decorated with a ribbon bearing the legend ‘This seat is being kept warm by the generosity of [your name] until we can fully reopen’.

Thank you!

All donations will help us reopen the theatre and continue to programme live performance. For more information, please email Doug Middling, our Individual Giving Manager, on
