Aldeburgh Festival, 10th-16th June 2011
Since the first Aldeburgh Festival in 1948, the Suffolk Coast has become a world-renowned meeting place for classical music lovers. Established by Suffolk-born composer Benjamin Britten, the Festival boasts an impressive programme of superb concerts, recitals, master-classes, films, lectures, walks, and free
events in Aldeburgh and on the beach. With a much expanded music campus recently opened at Snape Maltings, this is an exciting time to experience Aldeburgh's musical landscape.
