A fascinating talk exploring the ambition and endeavour which founded the Aldeburgh Festival and the early years which established its significance.

Dr Nicholas Clark, academic and writer, takes us back to the post-war years in which Britten and Pears established themselves in Aldeburgh and set about creating a festival in the place which became their lifelong home. The talk takes place in the Jubilee Hall – a venue linked with the Aldeburgh Festival from its very beginning.
