“The Red House” of Britten/Pears to become visitor center
The Britten 100 project has received support from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop the 17th century “The Red House”, in which Benjamin Britten lived with his partner, the tenor Peter Pears.
The Britten 100 project aims, among other things, to open the house, its collections and Britten's composition studio as never before.
Britten and Pears lived in “The Red House”, Aldeburgh, between 1956 and 1976. In 2013, when the 100th birthday of Britten will be celebrated, the project should be finished.
