Over the weekend of the 26th and 27th September Snape Maltings will be hosting The Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival’s Market Weekend. To maintain safe distancing, this is a ticketed event so please book your free tickets online via the website ( www.aldeburghfoodanddrinkfestival.co.uk ) in advance. We encourage anyone visiting the shop for the weekend to also book in advance to avoid disappointment as the whole site will be limited by number to ensure a safe experience for all.

Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme

Past courses

The Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme was founded over 40 years ago by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears to provide high-level performance training for the world’s best emerging professional musicians.

Residential projects and masterclasses take place throughout the year in the beautiful surroundings of the Suffolk Coast where Britten lived and worked. Participants benefit from an exceptional campus of performance spaces and studios, which has grown around the iconic Snape Maltings Concert Hall, home of the Aldeburgh Festival. The BPYAP hosts some of the premier performers and teachers who lead intensive projects, which culminate in high profile performances.
