Charleston Festival of the Garden

18 Jul 21 Jul

Charleston Festival of the Garden.

One of the biggest inspirations for modernist art of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant was the garden that surrounded Charleston: both were keen gardeners, transforming the muddy, overgrown patch of land they moved into, in 1916, onto an imaginatively structured, richly scented, brightly coloured paradise (with quite a lot of help from Maynard Keynes). Charleston Trust celebrate this legacy with an annual four-day festival. Guest speakers include Chris Packham, Zadie Smith and the inimitable Michael Blencowe.
