Write your name in history.
Two hundred years ago Michael Faraday demonstrated his invention of the world’s first electric motor in the theatre of the Royal Institution. We are inviting you to share in this heritage and help secure the Ri’s future by making a donation which we will acknowledge by naming a seat in our world-famous theatre – one for every year since Faraday’s world changing discovery.
Naming a seat is a unique way to celebrate your love of science and to support the charitable work of the Royal Institution. It‘s also an opportunity to honour or remember someone special, and a wonderful way to inspire future generations by dedicating a seat to a young person.
Become part of the Ri’s history and future by naming a seat.
We have 200 seats available and for a donation of between £300 and £5,000 you will be acknowledged with a named plaque for 5 years.
The Royal Institution’s vision is for a world where everyone is inspired to think more deeply about science and its place in our lives. Your philanthropy helps us make this a reality.
