Dame Ingrid Roscoe DCVO DL FSA

Everyone at Northern Ballet is devastated to hear of the sudden passing of Dame Ingrid Roscoe DCVO DL FSA.

As Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, she attended many performances with our Royal Patron, the Earl of Wessex KG GCVO. Beyond these official visits, she was a regular Northern Ballet attendee and a great supporter of the Company.

After she stood down as Lord Lieutenant, we were honoured that Ingrid agreed to become a Vice President for Northern Ballet. We are so pleased that Ingrid was able to attend the world première of Geisha on 14 March this year, before theatres closed.

Ingrid was a wonderful, kind, generous and thoughtful person and will be truly missed by us and many, many others. Our thoughts are with her husband Marshall and their family at this very sad time.
