The centenary of composer Benjamin Britten (1913–1976) will be commemorated by special events across the world – and you can experience it for yourself while staying at Kesgrave Hall. Immerse yourself in the wonderful spirit of one of the greatest musical minds to have come from the United Kingdom by visiting Aldeburgh itself. One of the country’s most-loved musicians, Britten was born in Lowestoft, Suffolk, but spent the majority of his life in Aldeburgh – which is just a short drive from the fabulous Kesgrave Hall.See for yourself how the breath-taking landscape of the Suffolk coast, sea and sky inspired Britten’s extraordinary work and continues to provide modern-day artists with creative stimulation. Don’t miss the chance to take in Britten’s wide-ranging legacy, including the festival he founded and the stunning Snape Maltings Concert Hall. Britten wrote 13 operas, including popular works based on The Turn of the Screw and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and became the first-ever composer to be honoured with a life peerage.

Kesgrave Hall is a boutique 4 star hotel in Suffolk , situated just off the A12 between Ipswich and Woodbridge – the Suffolk Heritage Coast with towns and villages such as Aldeburgh, Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich are all within a 30 minute drive and well worth a visit.
