Help us save the Bloomsbury paintings at Berwick

"The remarkable decorative scheme in Berwick Church is of national and even international importance."
Sir Nicholas Serota
Chair, Arts Council England, former Director of Tate


The Bloomsbury paintings in Berwick Church are an unique and complete example of the decoration of the interior of a Grade I listed parish church in the UK by 20th century artists, Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell, and Quentin Bell.

Visit our rural, parish church in the picturesque village of Berwick, near Lewes in Sussex, to experience these remarkable paintings in our beautiful setting.

Support our campaign to conserve, protect, and widen understanding and enjoyment of the largest paintings by the Bloomsbury artists, and celebrate the relationship between faith and the arts.

Why do we need to conserve the paintings?

The paintings are showing signs of damage with paint beginning to flake away. Find out more about why we need to take action now...

Saving Berwick

We have the opportunity to apply for significant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund if we can raise £200,000 before November 2018.

We rely on volunteers to keep the church doors open, welcome visitors to understand and experience the Bloomsbury paintings.
