We were staying at Aldeburgh with friends and decided to go to two very different concerts at the start of the 2018 proms. The first concert was the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. The seven members create a sound that is far greater than their...More

There’s no doubting the quality of the music here. It’s world class. Much has been said about the discomfort of the seats in the Concert Hall. By contrast, the Britten Studio is an intimate performance space that is very comfortable. The Festival itself uses other...More

Very good acoustics and visibility. Wheelchair spaces available,with a seat for companions next to them.
