Hesse Student Scheme
Established by HRH Princess Margaret of Hesse and the Rhine in 1959, this is a fantastic opportunity for young people with a love of music to be part of Aldeburgh Festival which takes place in June each year. Our Hesse Students assist with the day-to-day running of the Festival in exchange for tickets and accommodation.
To help with the running of exhibitions and concerts at Snape Maltings Concert Hall and other venues we have a wonderful team of volunteer Ushers and Invigilators. Invigilators provide a presence at exhibitions and ushers check tickets, sell programmes and show people to their seats, attending the concert for free in return. We also have qualified volunteer first aiders who attend concerts.
Recruitment and training takes place early in the year and we have a waiting list at other times. For more details about becoming an usher, please call 01728 687100 or email email@example.com.
