The Britten-Pears Foundation and Snape Maltings are continuing to plan for the proposed merger of our two charities next year. The news has been positively received and we will keep you informed as our ideas develop. It is a very exciting time for us as sister charities.

There has been considerable discussion about the proposed name for our newly merged organisation. There is much still to think about and organise and legal issues to be addressed before we finally merge. Both our boards have been reviewing the feedback we have received about the name, and it has been agreed that we will retain the names of both Britten and Pears.

We look forward to sharing more news with you in due course.
