PLEASE NOTE: All seats have now been named.
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.
The Tung Auditorium will be located at the heart of the building and will seat 400 with space for a 70-piece orchestra.
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.
For 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.
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.
