Snape Maltings is a charity using music to enrich people’s lives

Inspired by Benjamin Britten’s founding vision, our Creative Campus at Snape is a place where artists at all career stages are given the time and space to develop. It is also home to life-changing community projects, making the most of music’s ability to help in the most challenging of circumstances.

Half of our activity relies on charitable donations – a number likely to increase with reduced public sector funding – and over the next 10 years, we aim to develop our Creative Campus to become a national hub for pioneering work in the arts and wellbeing.

100,000 people are brought together by our innovative projects and world class performances every year.

80,000 participants engage in our Learning & Inclusion activities each year.

As much as 50% of our musical activity relies on charitable donations.

Over 40% of our tickets are under £15 or free
