Iken Hall

In Britten’s time Iken Hall was the home of Margery Spring-Rice, one of the founding members of the Aldeburgh Festival Council and Britten named it as the setting of his Let’s Make an Opera (1949), an ‘Entertainment for Young People’ which was premiered at the Aldeburgh Festival. The village of Iken is most notable for its beautiful and historic Church of St Botolph.
