Based on the latest advice from Public Health England and the UK Government, the Foundation has decided to close all buildings including those used as part of Creative Retreats until Saturday 4 July. All Retreats have been cancelled and we will aim to reschedule Retreats either later this year or in 2021.

For Benjamin Britten, a quiet place to compose was absolutely essential. He was fortunate enough to achieve this for most of his life, spending his last two decades at The Red House, down a quiet lane on the outskirts of Aldeburgh. Today, Britten Pears Arts are entrusted with a number of properties – three on The Red House site, and one nearer the town centre – that we are happy to offer to composers and other artists for the purposes of a peaceful, creative retreat. The properties are suitable for individuals, or for 2 (or more) people. To find out more, please see Useful Information first of all, then click on links to the individual properties.
