Patrons Trip
Charleston and Berwick Church 

Lewes, East Sussex 
Monday 10 June, 9am – 5pm

Charleston is the home to the Bloomsbury Group who included some of the twentieth century's most pioneering artists, writers and thinkers. Charleston's individually designed and hand-painted rooms provide unique spaces in which you can explore the stories and unconventional lives of Bloomsbury Group artists, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, and their influential friends and relatives.

The trip includes a guided tour of the house, including Charleston's two summer exhibitions: In Colour – Sickert to Riley, curated by London-based textile designer, Cressida Bell, granddaughter of artist Vanessa Bell, and Philip Hughes – Land, devoted to two landscapes – The Downs in East Sussex and West Penwith in the extreme west of Cornwall.

There will also be the opportunity to see Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell's Famous Women Dinner Service exhibition. These 50 dinner plates were commissioned by Sir Kenneth Clark in the early 1930s, and in the center of each plate is a portrait of a famous woman from history or contemporary life.

After lunch there will be a chance to visit Berwick Church, which contains paintings by Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell, and Quentin Bell, only three miles from Charleston.

A table has been reserved at The Cricketers, Berwick for 1.30pm, payable on the day.

£15 including transport. Leaving from Watts Gallery – Artists' Village.
