THE FRIENDS OF CHARLESTON

The Friends of Charleston was established in 1980 to support the restoration of the Charleston House & Garden on the Firle Estate in East Sussex. Home to artists Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell of the Bloomsbury Group, this gem in the heart of the South Downs contains the only example of a complete Bloomsbury interior in the UK.

Your subscription helps The Charleston Trust, a registered charity, secure the future of the museum as a place of international and historical interest. Every new Friend of Charleston contributes directly towards safeguarding the House, garden and collections for future generations as a key part of the history of British modern art.
