Britten Pears Arts visual art programme offers an exciting schedule of exhibitions, events, residencies and learning opportunities. Drawing on our rich history of art activity, and shared across our two destinations, Britten and Pears’ original art collection is firmly at our core.

At Snape Maltings, art will be programmed across the Sculpture Park, Dovecote Studio, Winch Gallery and Concert Hall Foyer as well as Building 21, a shop, gallery and learning room (opening in April 2024).

At The Red House in Aldeburgh the Kitchen Gallery houses an annual programme of art exhibitions and the house and garden show revolving displays of the 1200+ artworks from Britten Pears Arts Collection.

Entry to the galleries at Snape Maltings is free. Entry to The Red House is £11 for annual membership.
