Dedicate a seat

Ever shared an unforgettable experience with someone at Hackney Empire? Dedicate a seat in their name, or, even better, dedicate a seat in your own name!

Dedicating a seat in our auditorium for a family member, as a romantic gesture, in memory of a special person, or quite simply for yourself means that we can keep bringing audiences into Hackney Empire to make memories just like yours.

Whether you'd love a seat in your family’s name, to mark a special occasion, or to give someone a very unique gift, a dedicated seat is perfect for the theatre-goer in your life and is a great way to show your love and support.

"By dedicating a seat you will join Hackney Empire supporters from across the world of entertainment including: Stars of stage and screen Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Ben Kingsley, Barbara Windsor, Sylvester McCoy; Legends of Comedy Alan Davies, Michael Palin, Paul Merton, Lenny Henry, Dawn French, Nish Kumar, Arabella Weir and incredible musicians including Eric Clapton and Hackney Empire Patron Leona Lewis"

Yamin Choudury, Artistic Director Hackney Empire

Please note: Dedications can include names, dates, quotes, and phrases. A personalised plaque will be attached to the seat of your choice. Seats are £500 for 10 years and can be extended.

Once we’ve received your order, we’ll be in touch to organise your dedication and where in the auditorium you’d like your seat to be.

Have a special story about why you dedicated a seat? Get in touch, we'd love to hear all about it!
