The Red House

Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears' home in Aldeburgh offers a charming snapshot into the two men's lives. The farmhouse, nestled in a beautiful five-acre garden, is home to their collections and archive, alongside a gallery space, museum shop and outdoor café.


The Red House Exhibition: Britten and Women

Benjamin Britten is known for his decades-long relationship with the tenor Peter Pears, and for creating powerful roles for male characters in his operas. Yet the significant relationships with women throughout his life have been relatively unexplored. Britten and Women celebrates the powerful role of women in Britten’s life – and how they navigated their careers in a man’s world.
