Kettle’s Yard is the University of Cambridge’s modern and contemporary art gallery. Music has always been played at Kettle’s Yard. There are two pianos in the House at Kettle’s Yard and when it was a home to Jim and Helen Ede they used to hold small concerts. Now we continue to present concerts. While Kettle’s Yard is closed for our major building project we are holding concerts in the Old Divinity School at St John’s College in Cambridge.
