Charleston Festival

Herbert Scott are delighted to announce that we are a sponsor for this year’s Charleston Festival.  The festival will take place from 20th-30th May 2016 and brings together leading figures in literature, art, history, politics, science, theatre and architecture.

This year Charleston celebrates “Charleston at 100” marking the 100th anniversary of Vanessa Bell’s and Duncan Grant’s arrival at Charleston.

Herbert Scott are sponsoring an evening with authors, Andrew Lownie and Adam Sisman, chaired by Robert McCrum, writer and Associate Editor of the Observer.

Andrew Lownie’s Stalin’s Englishman: The Lives of Guy Burgess reveals the extraordinary true story of Guy Burgess, the man at the heart of the Cambridge Spy Ring and a linchpin of Cold War espionage. Despite Guy Burgess’ dissolute reputation, he was regarded by the Russians as the central figure in the notorious spy ring.  As an Apostle, he interacted with many characters associated with Bloomsbury.

Adam Sisman’s biography of John le Carré lifts the lid on the great spy writer’s early life and reveals that the influence of his reprobate father was even more formative than his years in MI5 and MI6.

Can Andrew Lownie and Adam Sisman explain our national fixation with espionage?

Tickets for this event and all others are available from the Brighton Dome Ticket office from 22nd February 2016.
