Snape and Aldeburgh

‘Snape Maltings is one of those rare artistic places where the buildings, the people who visit and work there, the magical setting, come together and enable you to do something out of the ordinary.’ – Alfred Brendel


'A unique selling point about Aldeburgh is that it is a wonderful place to be, no matter if the weather is fair or foul. If the sun is shining, the wide sea vista gleams with a brilliance few places can rival. If the east coast does its worst, the scudding black clouds and biting winds conjure a Peter Grimes atmosphere that is what this town, forever associated with Benjamin Britten, is all about.'
– Richard Fairman, Financial Times, June 2008
