About Britten Pears Arts
Britten Pears Arts is a pioneering music, arts and heritage charity based in Suffolk. It emerged from the determination of composer Benjamin Britten and his partner, singer Peter Pears, to ensure that everyone could enjoy and experience music. Britten Pears Arts aims to continue their legacy to develop talent and engage with communities. Our wide-ranging work includes the Aldeburgh Festival, running a world class concert hall and archive, a cutting edge programme of creative health work, the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme, public access to the Red House, Aldeburgh where they lived, and extensive learning and inclusion work throughout Suffolk and beyond. The organisation also has a significant trading arm - Snape Maltings Trading Limited.
