Glyndebourne needs your help

COVID-19 emergency appeal

As we deal with the very sad but necessary decision to cancel all Festival 2020 performances, we need your help.

If you would prefer to donate by phone please call our Box Office on +44(0)1273 815000 during Box Office opening hours

Glyndebourne is facing a devastating impact from the loss of revenue due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Our hearts go out to all our artists and loyal seasonal staff – two-thirds of our total workforce – whose incomes have been significantly affected overnight; as well as the many local people and businesses within the community that rely on the visitors, artists and jobs brought to the area by Glyndebourne.

Glyndebourne receives no public subsidy for the Festival season and so relies on 95% ticket sales to cover our costs and to help subsidise all areas of our work, including our year-round community programme, autumn national Tour and digital programme. This work touches the lives of people of all ages from communities across the UK.

As a financially independent charity that receives no public subsidy for the Festival, your support is vital to us.

Please make a donation to help us through this challenging time.

If you are a UK taxpayer we can claim Gift Aid on your donations at no extra cost to you.

As part of the donation process you will be asked if you would like to sign-up for Gift Aid, enabling Glyndebourne to reclaim tax on charitable donations at the rate of 25p for every £1 you give.

Thank you.
