John Sainsbury, Baron Sainsbury of Preston Candover, KG 2 November 1927 to 14 January 2022

We were deeply saddened to hear the news that Lord Sainsbury of Preston Candover had died. Like so many cultural institutions around the country, he has left an indelible mark on the Holburne. The redevelopment of the Museum ten years ago would have been impossible without his support. He played a vital role in the reimagining of the Holburne then and remained a loyal supporter to the end. Our team and our visitors are among the millions whose lives have been enriched through his generosity. Our thoughts are with Lady Sainsbury and their family.
