A rare chance to step inside Imogen Holst’s bijou gem of a home in Aldeburgh. Designed by H.T. ‘Jim’ Cadbury-Brown, her one-bed bungalow was built with her requirements in mind – a large living and working space, with a separate sound-proofed music room.

Imogen Holst was an exceptional creator, although she is more often defined by her relationship with her father, Gustav Holst, and with Britten for whom she worked for over a decade. Learn more about Imogen Holst in our Discovery Session at The Red House, Aldeburgh, on September 14.

This Open House is part of the Britten and Women exhibition at The Red House, Aldeburgh, and marks the 60 year anniversary of Holst moving into the house. The house has not been opened since 2016.

A film about Imogen Holst's life and work will be screening at the house.

Advance booking is recommended. Please book your entry time below. Entry to Church Walk is free if purchased with a full price ticket to The Red House from 2 to 4 September.

Please contact us if you have any special access needs so we can make arrangements
