From your first date to your fiftieth anniversary, the first time you felt that connection to classical music to the moment you saw the world differently. The most important moments don’t always happen on our stages.

Naming a seat in Southbank Centre is a way of celebrating and cherishing those special moments. It means you can extend your personal connection with our iconic arts venues, and ensures your memories, or the memories of a loved one, can live on in your favourite space.

When I lost my partner of 54 years I could think of no better way of commemorating our many visits to Queen Elizabeth Hall than to name two seats in our two favourite rows. It is a great consolation to me that I, and others, will sit in seats dedicated to him, in memory of wonderful performances we both enjoyed.

By choosing to name a seat in one of our auditoria you will be supporting our campaign to Let The Light In to our 1960s arts venues, helping ensure these spaces can continue to create special moments for audiences, long into the future.

I thought naming a seat for my mum and dad was a great gift for dad’s 80th birthday, and also a nice way to say thank you to Southbank Centre. Dad has enjoyed watching many artists perform here over the years, and talks about it all the time with such fondness. I thought it was a great way to help keep Southbank Centre around for years to come, and I know that my Dad feels the same.
