Entertainment

Entertainment Aldeburgh - Entertainment and attractions - Snape Maltings is a unique collection of granaries and malthouses nestling beside the River Alde. Shops, galleries and restaurants fill the old buildings where local barley was once malted for the brewing industry. The present owners, the Gooderham family, bought the Maltings in the 1960s and set about its gradual restoration and rejuvenation. In 1967 Snape Maltings Concert Hall was opened as a venue for the Aldeburgh Festival, the brainchild of composer Benjamin Britten and tenor Peter Pears.

Entertainment

Other information Aldeburgh - Other information - A sculpture of a scallop shell commemorating the life of composer Benjamin Britten on the beach at Aldeburgh (Right). Sculptor Maggi Hambling said the 12-foot (3.7-meter) steel scallop shell on Aldeburgh's windswept beach is a fitting tribute to the composer of the operas "Peter Grimes" and "Billy Budd," who lived in the town and loved its rugged North Sea coast.
