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.

The Amazon in autumn? Latin America as the leaves fall… how can it be? The answer is… Flipside! The festival that loves to look at things differently is back, and it’s bigger, bolder and greener than ever. Bringing the very best Brazilian, Cuban and Mexican writers, artists and musicians to Snape Maltings in collaboration with their remarkable British and Canadian counterparts, Flipside presents a weekend of encounter and exploration for all.

From talks to walks, family fun to fascinating films, food, music and more, Flipside has always put the accent on enjoyment and environmentally friendly entertainment; but this year it’s also thinking out loud, how do we live now? How should we live now? How do we even start to answer these questions? Why not ask Margaret Atwood or Jackie Kay, Ali Smith or Anna Pavord? Why not see what Helen MacDonald or Philip Hoare have to say? Eavesdrop on Anne Michaels or Álvaro Enrigue; voice your concerns with Iain Sinclair and Lucy Hughes-Hallet… They’ll all be here, along with many other tremendous talents, so why not join us?

Forget heads or tails, the coin will always land Flipside up.
