Between 1958 and 1973 Kettle’s Yard was the home of Jim and Helen Ede. In the 1920s and 30s Jim had been a curator at the Tate Gallery in London. Thanks to his friendships with artists and other like-minded people, over the years he gathered a remarkable collection, including paintings by Ben and Winifred Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood, David Jones and Joan Miro, as well as sculptures by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Constantin Brancusi, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. Guests will enjoy an exclusive private tour of the House given by a curator and view the temporary exhibition in the recently redeveloped exhibition gallery.

In the afternoon after free time for lunch (at own expense) there will be a guided tour to see the highlights of The Fitzwilliam Museum - one of the greatest museums in the country with an outstanding collection which ranges from Classical Antiquities to Impressionist pictures.

Please note that travel is not included.

This event has been organised by the London Fundraising Committee Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
