Music

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.

Performances

Snape Maltings hosts inspiring concerts and festivals throughout the year, from the flagship Aldeburgh Festival to the folk, world and jazz of the Snape Proms.

Forthcoming concerts

“One of those rare artistic places where the buildings, the people who visit and work there, the magical setting, come together and enable you to do something out of the ordinary.”
