Tucked away in the heart of the Sussex countryside, on the exquisite estate of Charleston Manor, renowned cellist Robert Cohen brought together international soloists to play chamber music in the magnificent 17th century tithe barn each June.

Witnessing these extraordinary musicians create exhilarating performances had a magnetic effect on the audiences. Everyone who shared in the magic of the Charleston Manor Festival made it the highlight of their musical calendar.

Robert Cohen was Artistic Director of Charleston Manor Festival from 1989 until 2011, when ownership of the private estate changed. We would like to thank our wonderful audiences for their heartfelt enthusiasm, loyalty and support over 22 years of musical celebration.
