The Pumphouse

44 Park Road, Aldeburgh, IP15 5EU

The Pumphouse is a Victorian brick structure situated on the edge of the marshes on the outskirts of Aldeburgh. It has been used as a fringe venue during the Aldeburgh Festival since 2000 and the combination of its raw-found beauty, intimacy and eclectic programme has made it very popular with audiences and performers. In 2011 the Pumphouse underwent significant improvements by adding an extension to the west side of the building offering a dressing room, toilets and a small foyer, all of which offer heating. Please note there is no heating in the Pumphouse itself. The venue is licenced for up to 60 people.
