Aldeburgh Town Council
The Town of Aldeburgh, situated on the Suffolk coast between Lowestoft and Felixstowe, is a popular seaside resort famous for music and the arts. In 1948 Benjamin Britten, one of the foremost composers of the twentieth century, founded the Aldeburgh Festival along with tenor Peter Pears and writer Eric Crozier, staging performances in local halls and churches.
Aldeburgh is not just about music - visitors also come here to enjoy the annual Poetry Festival, Regatta, Carnival, RNLI lifeboat station and various food festivals. Most of all, Aldeburgh is loved for its vast skies, brooding seas and an old fashioned charm where fishing boats still set off daily and return to sell their catch from huts on the beach.
Although Aldeburgh Town Council is often the first place people approach with queries or problems, its authority and powers are limited. It remains, however, as the focal point of the town, and works hard to represent local people by liaising with the relevant authorities and officers over local issues.
