The Stage is Set. It's your final call to Name A Seat.

After three years transforming the theatre that Cornwall deserves, we opened our doors on 13th October 2021 and welcomed the community of Cornwall and wider supporters back to join us. In January 2022 we welcomed in the first of our supporters to meet their seats and view their special plaques they kindly dedicated to help make our dream a reality.

Our video above tells the story of some of the many who have taken part in Name A Seat to date. We reached out to some of our community who kindly told us the story behind their plaques and moved us all.  

Almost 90% of our seats are now taken. We have been overwhelmed by the response so far; from heart-felt dedications and tributes to local business support and love notes to famous faces and humour all immortalized throughout our new auditorium. So many of you have already named your seats for yourselves and for loved ones and in doing so paved the way for our future at Hall for Cornwall.

Whatever your own, personal reason Naming A Seat allows you to pass on the passion of theatre, music or dance, note a special memory or create a unique gift for a loved one, for many years to come..

Dedication - Name A Seat

Frequently asked questions

Q: Why should I name seat? 

A: Cornwall deserves a cultural space where everyone feels the transformative power of the arts, on stage and off. A space where everyone is welcome; where 300,000 people a year can come and see a show with us, where 50,000 young people can grow in confidence and where Cornwall’s creative community can flourish. We need your help to make that happen. We’ve worked with passion, grit and gusto to raise £20 million towards our transformation and have been delighted that so many people have been inspired by and supported our vision. Now we need your help to raise the final amount and lift the curtain to fully realise the theatre that Cornwall deserves. You will be making your mark on the future of ground-breaking theatre and performance in Cornwall.
