Glyndebourne is sad to announce that Lady Christie passed away peacefully at home yesterday morning after a long and courageous battle. She will be remembered, in the words of her husband, the late Sir George Christie, 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.

She will be missed by her children,  grandchildren and extended family and we will dedicate Festival 2021 to her memory.

Gus Christie

Executive Chairman
