New College is renowned for its music, and yet the College has no dedicated performance space. To address this, the East Wing of the new building will house a versatile and fully accessible Recital Hall.
The 100-seat auditorium will also be an inspiring venue for theatrical performances, talks, debates and exhibitions.
Fund a Seat
You can help to build this exceptional space.
A gift of £5,000 will fund a seat in the Hall, which can be given as a single gift or as 5 annual gifts of £1,000 per year.

How to Give
Below are some examples of how UK tax payers can make a tax-efficient donation. In all cases, the College claims Gift Aid and the donor reclaims against their tax liability.
NB. The figures given assume the Higher Rate of income tax (40%) is being paid. Donors paying the Additional Rate (45%) will be able to reclaim a further 5%.
