YOUR NEWS – Dame Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg D.B.E. 1938-2020
We were deeply saddened to learn of the recent death from cancer, aged 82, of LTC’s honorary patron, Dame Diana Rigg, and wish to pass on our sincere condolences to her family and friends. Diana had been LTC patron since 1997 following the death of Beryl Reid, LTC’s first honorary patron. Above (inset) is a photograph of Diana playing Hedda Gabler alongside Philip Bond, former student of the Burton School of Speech and Drama. Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg was born in Doncaster in 1938, the younger of two children of Louis Rigg, a railway worker and his wife, Beryl. She was two months old when her father’s work took the family to Bikaner, in northwest India, and she grew up speaking Hindi as a second language.
