Bloomsbury: Two examples of the ornate decoration inside Charleston.

This summer all University employees can get 2-for-1 entry to Charleston, the Bloomsbury house museum near Lewes.

Just show your staff ID on arrival and bring a friend for free.

Charleston was the home and country meeting place for the writers, painters and intellectuals of the 'Bloomsbury group'.

The interior was painted by the artists Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell, and together with their collection, forms a unique example of their decorative style.
 
The house is open from Wednesdays to Sundays; for more information visit www.charleston.org.uk or call 01323 811626.

Set up by the Development and Alumni Relations Office, this arrangement is for the 2007 summer opening season.

The partnership is particularly appropriate as Special Collections in the Library houses the Bloomsbury Archives, including the papers of Virginia Woolf (the Monks House Papers) and Leonard Woolf and the Charleston Papers.
