Snape Maltings is a delight to visit for its architectural interest, its many galleries and exhibitions, and its important collection of sculptures, which includes works by Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Alison Wilding.

Visual art has been an important part of the Aldeburgh Festival since its inception. It was Britten and Pears’ belief that it should feature alongside the music, hence the full title Aldeburgh Festival of Music and the Arts. From the stage sets, to works shown in spaces in and around Snape Maltings, art has been married to the musical experience.
