Launch of Glyndebourne's Wind Turbine

Sir David Attenborough launched Glyndebourne's wind turbine on 20 January 2012, endorsing the opera house as an environmental innovator in the arts community.

Glyndebourne is the first UK arts organisation to generate its own power using a large scale wind turbine and at the launch event at Glyndebourne, East Sussex, the 67 metre turbine was welcomed by supporters. Speaking at the launch Sir David Attenborough said: "Wind power can never provide for all our wants but every bit of power generated by wind must be welcomed. Even if we only generate a fraction of what our country needs in this way, then we must."
