Memories are made in front of a cinema screen

Capture those moments by naming a seat at BFI Southbank.

A seat at NFT1 at BFI Southbank can be named in your honour.

Cherish the memory of a loved one, thank that special someone, or celebrate the place you discovered your love of film.

For a donation of £500 or £1,000 you can name the back of a BFI Southbank cinema seat for five or ten years – and in doing so, you will be supporting our mission as a charity to build a vibrant screen culture.

What next?

Please note:

  • Naming a seat is a charitable donation, and does not entitle you to admission to performances, or exclusivity to the seat when booking tickets.
  • Donations to Name a Seat directly support the BFI, registered charity no. 287780, and in many cases are eligible for Gift Aid.
  • Plaques are in place for five or ten years and after this period we will contact you and ask if you wish to renew your seat.
  • Seats are subject to availability, and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Thank you so much for your support.
