Name A Seat

Name A Seat

Play A Leading Role In Our Name A Seat Campaign

Naming a seat couldn’t be easier so why not join us in ensuring The Octagon’s future for generations to come?

The OctagonTheatre has 622 seats and its intimate size and friendly feel is loved by audiences and performers alike. The time has come to replace the seats in the auditorium using funds from the ticket levy and the fundraising efforts of The Foyer Club charity. We need your help to complete the funding for the project and so we are offering you the opportunity to 'Name A Seat' with a personalised plaque.

HOW CAN I NAME A SEAT?

From remembering a loved one to commemorating a special occasion, naming a seat makes a perfect surprise gift!

Each seat costs between £150 to £250 to name.

When naming a seat…

  • Your seat is yours for perpetuity
  • You can personalise your plaque with an inscription of up to 70 characters
  • You can visit your seat plaque for a photo opportunity
  • You’ll receive a commemorative certificate

To name a seat simply complete our Name A Seat form (click the red button below) and return it to us: Name A Seat, The Octagon Theatre, Hendford, Yeovil, Somerset, BA20 1UX, with payment. Payment can be accepted as cash, cheque or (over the phone) by card.

If you have a specific seat in mind* please contact our Box Office Supervisor, Charlotte Wood, to check availability: Charlotte.wood@southsomerset.gov.uk or 01935 845931.

*Seat selection is subject to availability



WHAT STORY WILL YOUR SEAT TELL?

We love hearing your special stories behind the naming of a seat so be sure to give us a call to share your story: 01935 845931 or Charlotte.wood@southsomerset.gov.uk

OUR PATRON – PAUL ZERDIN

Paul Zerdin began his life in pantomime here at The Octagon Theatre in the 1993 production of Cinderella. He has lasting memories of his fantastic time within this, his first pantomime production, and so The Octagon Theatre has become a special place for the Ventriloquist – who has since won the tenth season of America’s Got Talent leading to his very own Las Vegas residency. He is delighted to be supporting The Octagon’s Name a Seat campaign.

YOUR NAME A SEAT STORIES…

We are blessed with the theatre we’ve got and we’re delighted to make a contribution to its future.” – Mr & Mrs Martin

We’ve had so many happy times at The Octagon; not just the theatre, the restaurant is excellent as well.” – Mrs Goodridge

“I am a regular supporter of The Octagon Theatre... every year I am impressed with the variety of 'performers' [Adam Burgan, Theatre Manager] includes in the schedule. I would be happy if an aisle seat was recognised in [my wife's] memory.” - Mr Cooke

“I've named a seat in memory of my husband who loved coming to see the operatic society.” Mrs Sharp

“Others should join the campaign to ‘Name A Seat’ as, without doubt, the performing arts are something that enriches many peoples’ lives. With support from individuals and companies, the campaign will enable venues to continue providing an excellent variety of productions and a comfortable viewing experience for their visitors.” – Mrs Turner
