Support world-class training from the best seat in the house

Guildhall School is one of the top institutions for performing arts in the world, home to more than 1,000 students training to be the great musicians, actors, and production artists of the future. You can support this training by naming a seat in one of our state-of-the-art performance venues. Whether it’s to celebrate a special occasion, your passion for the arts, a connection with the School, or to remember a loved one, by taking your seat you are supporting the next generation of talented, emerging artists, whilst becoming part of the fabric of our institution.

“Given the need to ensure a vibrant future for the arts in the UK, I'm delighted to support Guildhall School by taking my seat. I'm motivated by my long-term friendships with two alumni, both now pursuing inspiring careers. I hope my gift will support the next generation of exceptional students”.

– Ann, Take Your Seat supporter
