Adam Smith Chair Auction

Own your own piece of Adam Smith Theatre history!

Ever wanted to recreate the magic of theatre or does the Adam Smith Theatre, Kirkcaldy, hold a special place in your heart?

You can have your very own part of history. Refurbishment of the theatre has given us the opportunity to auction a limited number of seats from the theatre’s main auditorium.

Your winning bid could help a campaign to raise £10,000 to make the excitement of theatre more accessible to more people in Fife.

While the seats have lost none of their showbiz appeal, bidders should be aware these are chairs that have served audiences well since the last refurbishment in the 1970s. They’re not pristine by any means but that can also part of their charm.

These chairs could provide the perfect perch in a home cinema room, a quirky conversation piece in your hall, a gaming chair or even an Instagram favourite in an eclectic café.

“The Adam Smith means so much to so many people, from generations who’ve sat in the same seats every year for the Christmas panto to mums and dads who’ve proudly watched their offspring take to the stage. This auction offers a one-off opportunity to own a part of the theatre,” said Michelle Sweeney, Director of Creative Development. 

“It is also a great opportunity to show your support for our theatres, which have been so badly hit by the pandemic while at the same time helping to broaden accessibility to the experience, be that for a child with autism who finds a normal performance overwhelming to someone who is visually impaired. 

“We’d urge you to dig deep to help us reach our target so that together we can truly broaden access to the magic of theatre for those to whom it’s less accessible.”
