From the Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridgeshire:

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Director, Donna Lynas, last Friday, January 22.

Donna died peacefully with her family beside her after living with lung cancer for the last two years. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time.

Igor Toronyi-Lalic writes: Adored Donna. Beautiful, inspirational human. Single-handedly made Wysing one of the most vital centres for new music in this country. And the only person I could always rely on to join me in a conspiratorial side-eye listening to bad music at Euro festivals
