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.

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.
