Name a Seat

Join fellow University of Liverpool alumni and friends in supporting the Yoko Ono Lennon Centre through your choice of gift to our campaign or by naming a seat within The Tung Auditorium.

We are delighted to offer the unique opportunity for you to name a seat in our brand new auditorium. 

Music is important to us. It is for this reason that we are investing in a new space to celebrate the arts – the Yoko Ono Lennon Centre. Combining exemplary teaching and learning facilities, state-of-the-art lecture theatres and audio-visual equipment - it will ensure that the University will continue to be a top choice for students of all disciplines worldwide.

Auditorium

The Tung Auditorium will be located at the heart of the building and will seat 400 with space for a 70-piece orchestra. Fewer than 100 seats remain to be named, read about the stories behind these seats on our name a seat stories webpage.

Put your name down in history

By naming a seat, your gift will support our mission of making the world’s greatest music accessible for everyone. Supporting activities including concerts, lectures and exhibitions, the Yoko Ono Lennon Centre will unite people of all ages and backgrounds.

Seat with name plaqueFor a minimum gift of £250, your dedication will be engraved on a plaque and affixed to a seat in The Tung Auditorium, where it will remain for the lifetime of the seat. Gifts can be made in full or in monthly instalments.

In recognition of your contribution, you will receive a personalised thank you from us and an opportunity to visit your seat, upon the opening of the Yoko Ono Lennon Centre in spring 2022.

Whether you choose to name your seat for yourself or your family or for someone special who always sits beside you, you will be supporting our mission to bring this wonderful new facility to the University and the city.  

Be part of our story

We've saved you a seat. Now put your name on it.

Make a donation. You can also pay in monthly instalments of £25 per month over 10 months here. 

Once you have made your gift you will receive a follow-up email with instructions on how to make your dedication. Please also note:

- Naming a seat doesn’t guarantee that your chosen seat will be exclusively available to you when purchasing a ticket for a show, a small number of seats are not fixed and may on occasion be removed to accommodate a symphony orchestra.

- You cannot choose the location of your seat, seats are named on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The Tung Auditorium is going to be a thrilling venue, and it is a great initiative to give alumni opportunity to each have a part in this new adventure.”
