Lady Mary Christie, 1937 - 2020
We are deeply saddened to report that Lady Mary Christie has died.
My dear mother passed away peacefully at home in the early hours of yesterday morning after a long and courageous battle. She will be remembered, in the words of my late father, as ‘the heartbeat which is at the core of Glyndebourne’s existence’. Her devotion to Glyndebourne, and in particular her love of the gardens, has enriched the lives of so many of us.
She will be missed by her children, grandchildren and extended family and we will dedicate Festival 2021 to her memory.
