Our shops and the new River View Café are open daily, and you can now book for concerts every weekend in the Concert Hall.
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.
Visit our shops
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.
Ed Sheeran filmed performance at Snape Maltings
Part of BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend of Live Music
We are delighted that Ed Sheeran chose Snape Maltings Concert Hall as the venue to film his performance for Radio 1’s Big Weekend of Live Music. Filming has already taken place and we are looking forward to tuning in this weekend.
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.
