In memory of Dame Gillian Lynne 1926 – 2018

Here at Northern Ballet we were greatly saddened to learn that Dame Gillian Lynne has passed away.

'It is a very sad day for all to lose such an extraordinary talent and woman.

Gillian played such a critical role in putting Northern Ballet on the map with A Simple Man and in introducing Christopher Gable to the Company. She continued to have a close relationship with the Company over the years.

We will all miss her very much. So a legend passes quietly into the night.'
