Snape Bridge on the B1069 will be closed from Monday 19 October for two weeks. We will remain open but please be aware that If you are travelling from the north side of the bridge, you will need to follow a diversion and allow an extra 20 minutes for your journey. If you are travelling on the B1069 from the south, your journey will be unaffected.

Doric String Quartet

Friday 18 September, 3pm & 7pm

Part of Weekend Concerts at Snape

The Doric Quartet would have performed at this year’s Aldeburgh Festival and we’re very pleased to welcome one of the UK’s best chamber ensembles back to Snape. They will give two different concerts, with Mozart and Mendelssohn in the afternoon, and Mozart and Haydn in the evening.

Alex Redington violin
Ying Xue violin
Hélène Clément viola
John Myerscough cello

Mozart String quartet in B flat, K.589
Mendelssohn String quartet in E minor op.44 no.2

Mozart String quartet in D, K.575
Haydn String quartet in B flat, op.33 no.4


Tickets for this concert go on sale at 10am on Saturday 12 September. Maximum 4 tickets per household.


We want everyone to have the opportunity to experience live music again, and so the afternoon performances will be ‘Pay What You Can’, meaning you can see amazing live music at a price that you feel able to afford.

Food & Drink

Enjoy stone baked pizza in the heated tipi (pre-booking essential) or a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, bar snacks and nibbles from the Concert Hall Café and Bar.

Your safety and that of our artists and staff is our top priority and so some things will be different to what you’re used to. Key changes are:

  • Reduced capacity in the Concert Hall, with socially distant seating. Tickets are limited to 4 per household.
  • Shorter performances with no interval.
  • Audience members will need to wear face-coverings (unless they are exempt as per the Government’s guidelines).
  • No printed material – no tickets, programmes, or programme notes.
  • Clear signs and helpful staff to make your visit straightforward.
  • Regular and thorough cleaning, with hand sanitiser for you.
