Sponsor Your Seat

Since the launch of our Sponsor Your Seat campaign, marking the theatre's 120th anniversary, the list of seat sponsors has continued to grow and we are now rapidly approaching 100 seats sponsored. From an onstage meet and greet with our Creative Director John Godber, to behind-the-scenes tours, and special pantomime preview invites, we have enjoyed welcoming our seat sponsors to join us for these unique experiences.

To join our seat sponsors at the next event, click here to buy online or contact Gavin on 01924 330 060 or email gavin.leonard@theatreroyalwakefield.co.uk. Alternatively, download the Information Pack (pdf) and return the completed form to Gavin Leonard, Theatre Royal Wakefield, Drury Lane, Wakefield, WF1 2TE.
