Give in memoriam or celebration

Pay tribute to a loved one by making a donation in their memory, or make a gift to Glyndebourne to mark a special occasion.


Make a meaningful gift, either in memory of a loved one or to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary, by donating to Glyndebourne.

Your donation can be directed towards a particular project, or support our work as a whole.

Give in memoriam

You can remember and pay tribute to a loved one by making a donation to Glyndebourne in their memory.

This is a valuable and very special way to celebrate a life, commemorating their love of opera and Glyndebourne, while making sure our work continues for future generations. A donation can be a meaningful way to mark a special day. A single or regular gift on a birthday or anniversary can be a lasting tribute to someone’s life, a tribute that provides for opera now and into the future.


We have a limited number of opportunities available for dedication including garden benches and seats in the Ebert Room. Or maybe there is a particular project you would like to support to help remember a loved one, one that will reflect their relationship with Glyndebourne.

Contact our Development team to talk about your wishes.

How to donate

You’re welcome to send us donations in memoriam in a number of ways:

  • Request a donation form by calling +44 (0)1273 815 400.
  • Give your donation to the Funeral Director to forward to us
  • Send a cheque, payable to Glyndebourne, to Glyndebourne, Lewes, East Sussex BN8 5UU

Please include your name and address so we can say thank you.

Give in celebration

Whether it is a wedding, birthday, retirement or anniversary, you can support Glyndebourne by making a gift to mark the occasion.

Even if you just want to say thank you to someone special, a gift to Glyndebourne can honour them in a unique and personal way. If you’re planning a celebration, you can ask your friends and family to donate to Glyndebourne as the perfect alternative gift. You can let us direct the money where is it needed most or talk to us about projects that would be meaningful to you and would benefit from your support.
