Charleston Help save the Bloomsbury home of art an ideas
After Duncan Grant’s death in 1978 the house fell into disorder. The Charleston Trust, a registered charity formed in 1980 to raise over £1,000,000 to restore the house, opened its doors to the public in 1986; it has continued to do so every year, between March and November, to around 35,000 visitors. However, the recent closure of Charleston due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the cancellation of Charleston Festival, has incurred financial difficulties for the trust. Charleston is a charity which receives no public funding and is therefore reliant on your help now more than ever.
Charleston have set up an emergency fund to raise money to ensure that the continued conservation of the house is upkept to enable its re-opening. Please visit their website for further information.
