All music events until the end of April are cancelled, and the shops and cafes are temporarily closed in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. The site at Snape Maltings is still open for those who want to enjoy the fresh air and expansive natural environment of the River Alde estuary. More info

Open Space

A bespoke support programme for innovative and ambitious emerging artists and ensembles.

Between 2013-2019, we have been fortunate to support a number of individual artists and ensembles on a long-term artist development scheme, Open Space, which has been generously supported by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

Through a series of artist-led residencies, Open Space has offered the flexibility to explore and create new works, try out new collaborations and experiment with new ways of working, away from the pressures of everyday life as a professional musician. This unique opportunity has allowed participants to become part of the Snape Maltings family, to experience Snape’s creative campus on a regular basis and to make use of our expertise and vast array of contacts.
