Inside Stories

  1. Art at Glyndebourne 2020: Lesley Birch

    This summer, we made the decision to radically change our approach for Art at Glyndebourne as we took our exhibition programme online and created our first digital showcase. In the same way, many of our exhibiting artists have used lockdown as a time to explore different techniques and ways of working. With ‘nothing to do but paint’, artist Lesley Birch has seen lockdown as an opportunity to experiment with how she records her creative practice. In this blog, she describes how a new series of landscape paintings for Glyndebourne were created and the experience of finding focus in a strange time.

  2. Art at Glyndebourne 2020: Kathryn Johnson

    The painter Kathryn Johnson is a relative newcomer to the art world. Graduating last year from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, her inclusion in the prestigious FBA Futures 2020 exhibition at the Mall Galleries, proves she is already an artist to watch. Johnson has created five large-scale paintings for Glyndebourne, each made in response to a residency she attended in Panama last year.

  4. Exclusive extract: A Slim Volume by Sir George Christie

    George Christie wryly referred to his book as a 'slim volume'. He would have delved further into more memories of Glyndebourne, but ran out of life. This, as he said, is for the record.

    We’re delighted to present an exclusive extract from the book, which you can read here.

    The ceiling of the Organ Room at Glyndebourne is a thing of great beauty, constructed a century ago to the exacting specifications of our founder, John Christie.
