Located on the Suffolk coast, Snape Maltings is one of the world’s leading centres of music and a visitor destination of outstanding natural beauty.
One of the world’s leading centres of music, Snape Maltings brings together a creative campus buzzing with activity, outstanding concerts and events, and distinctive independent shops, cafes and galleries, all set within a breathtaking expanse of reeds, water and sky on the Suffolk coast.
Snape Maltings has grown out of the Aldeburgh Festival, founded by Benjamin Britten in 1948, and Britten’s vision for Snape Maltings remains at the heart of our work; a place international in its reach while rooted in its local communities.
Snape Maltings is a place of energy and inspiration for people ranging from concert audiences to musicians developing skills on courses and residencies, and from young people to artists and researchers exploring music’s potential to improve lives. Over the next 10 years we are expanding our focus to become a national and international hub bringing together all those involved in music’s place in the world: musicians, researchers, clinicians, communities and audiences.
Shops & Galleries open: Monday to Saturday 10am to 5.30pm, Sunday 10.30am to 4.30pm (browsing from 10am)
