Under the supervision of the Christie family, the festival has been held annually since 1934, except in 1993, when the theatre was being rebuilt.

The real reason for visiting Glyndebourne is not the Pimms, or the bucolic setting, or the chance to see and be seen - but the opera, which is of consistently high quality.
Membership of the Society is not cheap (nor are tickets - Glyndebourne does not receive the public subsidy which the other major British opera companies enjoy), but its benefits include priority booking; I pay half the subscription and have, in fact, been to quite a few more operas at Glyndebourne than William has.
