Discover Charleston’s ground breaking queer history in a 40-minute ground floor house tour with an expert guide.
Charleston has an incredible LGBTQ+ history, having been home to the Bloomsbury group – a largely queer group of artists, writers and thinkers that included Duncan Grant, Virginia Woolf, Lytton Strachey, John Maynard Keynes and E M Forster. Together, they forged new ways of living at Charleston in the early 20th century, with the house acting as a space to explore love, friendship, pacifism, atheism, same-gender relationships and polyamory.
On Saturday 8 February, queer house tours will run every 30 minutes from 11.30am – 14.30pm, as part of ‘OUTing the Past’ festival of LGBT+ history. Find out more here.
We are excited to say that on the day we’ll be running a FREE shuttle bus from Lewes train station to Charleston! Details TBC.
