Glyndebourne continues to face the devastating impact from the loss of revenue due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

While we are planning to stage a revised version of the Festival in 2021, we are still facing a difficult future. With continuing restrictions in place, many of our seats will have to remain empty, and the income the Festival generates will be greatly reduced. 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.

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.
