Event description

Description

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) we will take a guide 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.
