Snape Bridge on the B1069 will be closed from Monday 19 October for two weeks. We will remain open but please be aware that If you are travelling from the north side of the bridge, you will need to follow a diversion and allow an extra 20 minutes for your journey. If you are travelling on the B1069 from the south, your journey will be unaffected.

Art

Snape Maltings is a delight to visit for its architectural interest, its many galleries and exhibitions, and its important collection of sculptures, which includes works by Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Alison Wilding.

Visual art has been an important part of the Aldeburgh Festival since its inception. It was Britten and Pears’ belief that it should feature alongside the music, hence the full title Aldeburgh Festival of Music and the Arts. From the stage sets, to works shown in spaces in and around Snape Maltings, art has been married to the musical experience.
