Aldeburgh Festival 2011

Come and visit the 2011 Aldeburgh Festival

A visit to Aldeburgh in Suffolk will always be a memorable experience, however if you have never visited during the festival season you are certainly missing out. The early classical movement in Aldeburgh was started by The famous local composer Benjamin Britten who was inspired by the vast skies and moody seas of the Suffolk coast. Then in 1948, along with singer Peter Pears and writer Eric Crozier, Britten founded the Aldeburgh Festival. Nowadays the Aldeburgh Festival is an English arts festival devoted mostly to classical music. The 2011 Aldeburgh Festival will take place in June in the Aldeburgh area of Suffolk, with most of the action being centred on the main concert hall at Snape Maltings as well other locations in the area. In an attempts to appeal to a younger audience the Aldeburgh festival expanded to include the Faster Than Sound event which highlights experimental and electronic music, and 2010 saw the addition of yet another independent music event, TEDx Aldeburgh Music. This year’s Aldeburgh Festival, the 64th in total, will certainly be one not to be missed.
