Charleston has a spectacular line-up for its 30th festival of ‘books, ideas and creativity’. With big names from Jeanette Winterson, Joan Bakewell, Alan Bennett, Michael Palin and Simon Callow to Peter Blake, Lionel Shriver, Posy Simmonds and Vanessa Redgrave, there’s something to tempt anyone interested in literature and the arts.
Running from Friday 17 May until Monday 27 May, the schedule is packed with interest and diversity, so it’s worth nabbing tickets before your chosen event or events sell out. If you are visiting over several days, now is also the time to book accommodation because rooms sell out, especially as the summer season of Glyndebourne Opera starts on Saturday 18 May.
Check out Short Stay Lewes’ mix of fabulous bed and breakfasts and studios to find somewhere that’s perfect for your visit. You can check availability instantly and book online so that you can be sure you’ve secured somewhere to relax after your Charleston lectures. All of Short Stay Lewes’ properties will offer you a warm welcome.
