Name a Seat

By naming a seat at Theatr Clwyd your name will be engraved onto a plaque and attached to your seat for up to 25 years and, with enough notice, we will ensure you can always sit in your seat when you visit. As a thank you, you will be invited to join us for a technical rehearsal of Theatr Clwyd’s star production of the year – our Panto! - to experience how we make productions. All seat naming options can be paid in one payment or 10 monthly instalments.

In our Anthony Hopkins Theatre £100

A space that houses our biggest productions and acclaimed work, this seat will become your legacy. The redevelopment will preserve much that is loved about this auditorium space, including the theatre’s original 1970s design with handmade acoustic brick tiles which will be further revealed on either side of the proscenium arch stage. A full mechanical and technical overhaul will ensure your theatrical experience is of the highest standard possible, while brand new seating will replace the tired, tatty and worn 46-year-old ones currently in place, without compromising the incredible view offered from every seat. You will be able to sit in comfort and style when visiting to see your favourite plays, music, dance and comedy.

Temporary aisles will be available on occasion and removeable banks of seating in the front rows of the auditorium will create more, better positioned spaces for wheelchair users to watch performances. Finally, re-decoration throughout and newly fitted carpets will give the auditorium the full refurbishment it needs.


In our Emlyn Williams Theatre £100

Our studio houses our new writing and experimental plays as well as successful productions such as our Olivier award-winning comedy Home, I’m Darling and The Assassination of Katie Hopkins, which won best new musical at the UK Theatre Awards.

During the redevelopment our studio will be overhauled technically, installing mechanisms for flying scenery within the space for the first time! The original 1970s chairs will be maintained and reupholstered retaining its original design, with new balcony seating commissioned to match.


In our Cinema £50

If our cinema holds a special place in your heart you may prefer to choose to sponsor a seat here.

The cinema foyer will be improved and made much larger by relocating existing nearby store rooms, providing space for a kiosk and occasional temporary bar to serve popcorn and snacks and a seating area to wait before the show. The cinema will have new, designated WC’s, redecoration and adjustment of the screen position to improve sightlines. Sound in the cinema will be improved by new acoustic separation from the studio room above and a new ventilation system means a comfortable evening will be had by all.
