Charleston’s Patron


Duchess of Cornwal-Approved-resizedAs a supporter of the arts and a native of East Sussex, I discovered in Charleston a unique atmosphere of rural peace and creativity. For thirty years the Charleston Trust has worked to restore and maintain this special, fragile place, preserving the inspiring inheritance of Bloomsbury in Sussex.

Today, the Trust plans to restore the historic farm buildings, construct exciting new spaces in a hidden courtyard and safeguard the tranquil agricultural setting. These buildings will be used for a range of inclusive creative and educational initiatives, keeping the house alive and inspiring the next generation. The survival of Charleston depends on the success of this project. As Patron of The Charleston Trust I am delighted to support the Charleston Centenary Project.”
