If you enjoy our concerts why not Adopt-a-Seat?
You can adopt your favourite seat in your name, or seats named for family and friends, to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, to commemorate a graduation or other milestone, or as a way of remembering a departed loved one. Some seats have already been adopted in this way, others to acknowledge favourite composers. The choice is yours. Adopting a seat is a very personal way to share in the development of this wonderful cultural arts venue. The money raised goes towards providing the best facilities possible for our musicians and provides a visible and lasting legacy for future generations of students.
If you would like more information about seat sponsorship please email us at: email@example.com or write to us: Adopt-a-seat, The Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama, The University of Manchester, Bridgeford Street, off Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PL.
