Celebrate Easter at Snape Maltings

This Easter, Snape Maltings near Aldeburgh, presents contrasting masterpieces of sacred music that continue to hold a magnetic power over our imagination. Bach's dramatic telling of Christ's Passion is operatic in scope, while the celebrated vocal ensemble, Tenebrae, finds musical solace within Fauré's gentle Requiem. 

Throughout the weekend, there will also be a host of family-friendly activities, including an Easter Egg hunt, and a special Easter Farmers' Market.
