From Britten to Bones: the Aldeburgh Festival

The Aldeburgh Festival was founded in 1948 by the composer Benjamin Britten and the tenor Peter Pears. In 1967, it moved from Aldeburgh to a Victorian maltings at nearby Snape. This year, the Festival includes Snap, an exhibition by artists including former YBAs Sarah Lucas, Don Brown and Gary Hume, who have a special connection to the area. Jan Dalley has a preview.
