Your donation is acknowledged with a seat that is named for a period of 5 years, after which the Royal Institution reserves the right to make the seat available to re-name. We will endeavour to contact you before this expiry date to give you an opportunity to name it again.
The dedication must be the name of an individual(s) or ‘In Memory of’. Please provide the chosen names up to a maximum of 50 characters over two lines (25 characters per line), including spaces.
Your chosen dedication will be engraved on a plaque, and it will be attached to a seat in the row selected.
The supporter named on the seat does not own the seat at any point. The seat will remain the property of the Royal Institution.
Naming a seat does not include admission to talks, lectures or events or guarantee allocation of that seat.
Seats cannot be reserved.
Please note that seats are subject to availability and on a first-come, first-served basis.
You cannot change the name you have chosen to be engraved after confirmation with the Development team, or after the name has been engraved on the plaque.
You will receive an email confirmation of your donation once we have received your donation.
You will also receive in the post a naming acknowledgement certificate with a photograph of the named plaque.
You may choose to name a seat as a gift for a friend or loved one. Certificates can be sent to the recipient or to the donor.
If seats at specific donation levels are no longer available, the Ri might consider releasing further seats to continue raising much-needed income for its charitable work.
