Snape Maltings is a place of energy and inspiration – one of the world’s leading centres of music and a visitor destination of outstanding natural beauty.

The creative campus is home to a year-round programme with a unique artistic model. Having grown out of the Aldeburgh Festival, it has realised founder Benjamin Britten’s vision for an international centre of music whose performance programme makes its mark on the world’s stage and which has artist development, learning and community inclusion as its creative engine. Snape Maltings’s programme ranges from development opportunities for musicians at all career stages to work that explores music’s ability to have a positive impact on people’s lives when they need it most.

For visitors, Snape Maltings brings together outstanding concerts and events, distinctive independent shops, cafés, galleries, walks, all set against a breathtaking expanse of reeds, water and sky.
