Dedicate a Seat at the Theatre


Your comfort matters to us so this autumn we are restoring the seats in the Festival Theatre, many of which are original to the 1928 auditorium.

If you’d like to support the restoration with a donation you can contribute here.

Or perhaps you’d like to dedicate one of the refurbished seats? Honour a loved one, celebrate a special occasion, demonstrate your love of the arts or simply show your support for a theatre you love.

For a donation of £300 (or £500 for a pair) you can dedicate a seat in the King's or Festival Theatre with an inscribed brass plaque featuring a personal message. All proceeds from the Seat Dedication scheme go directly back into improving the theatres.

Because it's more than just a seat plaque...'s being part of a piece of Edinburgh's history's commemorating happy memories shared with loved ones's remembering where you experienced your first panto and where you've seen the best performers from around the world's showing your support for one of Edinburgh's best-loved theatres
