Our shops and our outdoor café are now open. Concerts will restart in late May. You can also shop online, with 'click and collect' available.
Our re-opening plans
We are excited to share our plans for starting concerts and events again and re-opening our sites and shops. Of course, as with all organisations, our plans are tied to the government’s roadmap for relaxing COVID measures and are therefore subject to change.
Concerts & Events
Live indoor performances re-start in Snape Maltings Concert Hall
In the absence of being able to create a full Aldeburgh Festival, we will offer a series of special events as part of our summer programme.
Snape Maltings Concert Hall will host daily performances in the spirit of the Snape Proms
We are open
We’re delighted to announce that all our shops are now open! Visit us to discover beautifully refreshed collections in House & Garden, a new look for our Craft Shop, and much more.
Stay at Snape
We offer a range of beautiful self-catering holiday properties from a delightful one bedroom cottage to a six-bedroom house, all located within the Maltings.
We are now taking bookings from 12 April
On 1 April 2020, the Britten-Pears Foundation and the charity Snape Maltings merged to create a new pioneering music, arts and heritage charity called Britten Pears Arts.
Every purchase in the shops and cafés at Snape Maltings supports the innovative and important work of Britten Pears Arts, but if you can, please consider making a donation.
Visit The Red House
The Red House in Aldeburgh is the former home of Britten and Pears and is lovingly preserved and open to all. It cares for the collections left by the two men, including their Archive which holds an extraordinary wealth of material richly documenting their lives. The site is surrounded by a five acre garden offering a peaceful setting to this beautiful corner of Suffolk.
