Snape Maltings

Snape Maltings is a place of energy and inspiration – a visitor destination of outstanding natural beauty and one of the world’s leading centres of music, founded by Suffolk-born composer Benjamin Britten.

This remarkable collection of redeveloped Victorian industrial buildings boasts a world-class concert hall, distinctive independent shops, cafes and galleries, all set against a breath-taking expanse of reeds, water and sky.
As one of the world’s leading centres of music, Snape Maltings hosts outstanding concerts and festivals throughout the year, from the flagship Aldeburgh Festival – one of Europe’s top classical events – to the folk, world music and jazz of the Snape Proms. What makes Snape Maltings so special is its creative campus, which hosts residencies and courses for musicians at all career stages as well as pioneering learning and inclusion projects.
