Be a part of something special

Aldeburgh Music is unique in the musical landscape – an international performance centre at Snape Maltings with new music, participation and nurturing talent at its heart, continuing the vision of our founders Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears. Today, it is where generations of musicians and audiences come together, offering numerous opportunities to experience extraordinary music-making in an inspirational place.

We are proudly local, regional, national and international, based in a rural area but a vital part of a global music network. The internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival remains central to our mission, complemented by a diverse year-round programme of events that reach out to a wide public.

The support of our audiences makes the vast range of our activities possible. A third of our income has to come from private sources – individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations – who together make possible the continuation of our work.
