Support the Annual Fund

Help us upgrade our backstage systems so we can stay at the forefront of opera for another 25 years

Each year the Annual Fund raises money to improve aspects of the Glyndebourne experience.

When we rebuilt the opera house in 1994 we installed backstage systems that put us at the forefront of theatre technology. It has now been 25 years since this major upgrade, and some of the equipment we use is no longer at the cutting edge. In order to remain at the pinnacle of what can be achieved on stage, we need your help to complete this essential upgrade.

In the 25th anniversary year of the new opera house, your donations to our Annual Fund will ensure that we can continue to create world class opera in the most efficient, safe and effective way possible.

This new technology will allow Glyndebourne to remain a world leader in opera production and allow creative teams to achieve what is possible in other great theatres across the world.

We look forward to updating you on progress of this exciting and essential project.
