A fascinating exploration of Aldeburgh, taking in the town as Britten and Pears both found and shaped it, in the engaging expert company of Dr Christopher Hilton.

Designed to complement and enhance this year’s Red House exhibition, this morning walk begins with refreshments and an introduction at the Jubilee Hall, the centre of the Aldeburgh Festival’s early days. It goes on to explore the town that Britten and Pears found when they moved here in 1947, some of the places that became central to their everyday lives, and of course some key locations in the Festival’s long history – a history which in many ways is also the story of the town itself since 1948.

Please dress for the weather and expect to walk approximately 2 miles at a relaxed pace. If extreme weather makes it impossible to proceed (see our social media for up-to-date information), the whole event will take place at the Jubilee Hall.

Dr Christopher Hilton Head of Archive and Library
