1916-2016: Charleston celebrates its Centenary
Sunday 16 October 2016 marks the centenary of the arrival at Charleston of Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and David ‘Bunny’ Garnett. Their arrival to the background as conscientious objectors in World War 1 saw the creation of Charleston as the country home of the Bloomsbury group and a legacy of art, literature and freedom of thought that is as relative today as it has been over the last 100 years.
To celebrate this landmark at Charleston, there are several activities and programmes planned over the centenary weekend and into the centenary year.
Saturday 15 October: The Tribunal: Your Country or Your Conscience?
4pm: Tickets £10/£8 (concessions). Suitable for ages 12+ Tickets on sale via EventBrite.
Sun 16 October (1-5pm): Charleston at 100 – special day of ‘sneaky peaks’ and ‘extra treats’ that explore the rich history of the House and its inhabitants.
