With booking started for this year’s Charleston Festival, which runs from Friday 19 to Monday 29 May, here’s a timely reminder to reserve yourself a luxury place to stay so that you can make the most of your visit. Short Stay Lewes has nearly a dozen wonderful bed and breakfast and self-catering properties, all just a short drive from Charleston.
The festival, ‘where books, ideas and creativity bloom’, has an impressive line-up of speakers this year, including John Simpson, Vanessa Redgrave and Barry Humphries, to name just a few. The festival dinner is also likely to be a big draw with former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and musician Min Kym speaking and the latter also playing the violin.
Check out the Charleston Festival website for a full list of all the events taking place and how to book them.
