Name a Seat

Naming a seat is a wonderful way to leave a lasting contribution to the College of behalf of yourself, a group or a loved one.

Support us by naming a seat in our refurbished Concert Hall. Your dedication can include up to 30 characters, giving you the freedom to write a special message of your own choosing. Seats have been named by staff and students past and present, as well as music lovers and artists from across the world with dedications varying as much as the people and stories behind them.

‘I chose to name a seat, not only as a memorial to a loved one and fellow concert lover but also to support an institution that has given us so much pleasure in the past; to help widen its remit and output’   Kate Whale, Named Seat Donor
