Snape Maltings is one of the world's leading centres of music and a place of energy and inspiration for people ranging from concert audiences to musicians developing skills on courses and residencies.
Snape Maltings has grown out of the Aldeburgh Festival, founded by Benjamin Britten in 1948 and now one of Europe’s leading classical music events. From young people performing on a professional stage for the first time to artists and researchers exploring music’s potential to improve lives, Britten’s vision for Snape Maltings remains at the heart of our work – a place international in its reach while rooted in its local communities.
