Donate to the Annual Fund
Set the spotlight back on our world-class stage
DONATE TODAY AND HELP Glyndebourne remain a world leader in opera production.
Our essential backstage project has been on hold since we sadly had to cancel the 2020 Festival. To stay at the forefront of theatre technology, we need your help. Set the spotlight back on our stage by supporting this vital upgrade.
Recent technology has generated a wealth of new opportunities to improve the technical processes on our stage. Your support will help to carry out the essential transition from a manual backstage system, that derived in the 19th Century, to a modern, automated fly system. This will allow for greater creative possibilities, faster scenery changes and even more daring operatic experiences – that we can’t wait to showcase.
As we begin recovery from a multi-million-pound loss caused by the pandemic, we are determined to not only survive but to thrive.
Donate to our Annual Fund online
Those donating £1000+ will be invited to join our Ebert Room Club, where you gain access to exclusive events and enjoy a closer relationship with Glyndebourne.
Your donation will help ensure that we can stay at the forefront of theatre technology to create
world-class opera in the most efficient, safe and effective way possible.
Our target is to raise £1.5 million towards the costs of this project over 5 years. So far, donations to our Annual Fund have helped raise £963,361 since 2019. Thank you! This autumn we enter phase two, which will see new lighting bridges installed and new prop hoists.
