Following a healthy and wholesome breakfast cooked by our Flint Barns chefs, Dr Darren Clarke, Head of Collections, Research and Exhibitions at Charleston will give a talk providing insight into life behind the scenes at Charleston. The staff at Charleston are encouraged to use their own creativity and experience to make Charleston a living experience for all.
The Charleston Trust is the organisation that cares for the former home of the Bloomsbury artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. The Bloomsbury group included some of the twentieth century’s most pioneering artists, writers and thinkers – people who believed in debate, creativity, beauty, innovation and truth and whose work was guided by a sense of fun, freedom and irreverence
