For artists at all stages of their careers to experiment, take risks, develop new skills and recharge creative batteries.



Residencies at Snape Maltings are designed to provide a unique opportunity for musicians and other artists at all stages of their career to experiment, take risks, develop new skills and recharge creative batteries.

With its dramatic landscapes, soaring skies and a rich musical history, Snape Maltings is a haven for creativity. Since the days of Benjamin Britten it remains a place where artists from around the world find inspiration and are stimulated to reach their full potential.

Residencies usually last for a week – longer, sometimes, in the case of composers. Groups or individuals are generally funded for their accommodation, food and UK travel and will be expected to allow public access to the work that’s being undertaken.

This will be in the form of an informal Open Session performance, and additionally some projects may also be invited to participate in an upcoming Aldeburgh Festival or concert series.
