Snape Maltings Concert Hall

Snape Maltings Concert Hall

Built by Newson Garrett in the mid–19th century, the 810-seat Concert Hall began life as a malthouse. Officially opened in 1967 by HM Queen Elizabeth II, the Concert Hall suffered serious fire damage two years later, re–opening in time for the Aldeburgh Festival the following year.

With unparalleled views across the River Alde, the River View Restaurant and Café & Bar are open to ticket holders on concert days. The Winch Gallery runs along the opposite side of the hall from the foyer.

Britten Studio

At the heart of the Hoffmann Building is the Britten Studio, designed to have an excellent and flexible acoustic with a high level of sound insulation which is ideal for recording orchestral rehearsals. It can also be used as a 340–seat venue.

The Britten Studio is not currently available to hire for concerts.
