Here, off leafy and secluded Golf Lane, in the Suffolk seaside town of Aldeburgh, Britten and Pears lived and worked from 1957 until their deaths.
Today The Red House is the home of the Britten—Pears Foundation. From 8 June - at the start of the 2013 Aldeburgh Festival - the site re-opens to welcome visitors in Britten's centenary year.
Come and share the inspiring ambience and gain new insights into Britten's music in the place where much of it was written. The Studio where Britten composed has been restored and opens to visitors for the first time.
Also new in 2013 is the Gallery, an engaging new exhibition that introduces visitors of all ages to Britten and his music. The interiors of the House have been re-presented as they were in the mid-1960s, as has the historic Library room.
The key to opening up the site is a unique new Archive, purpose-built to house Britten's internationally-significant collections.
BPF's investment in this major redevelopment across The Red House site has been generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
