Kettle's Yard is a remarkable house and collection, opened in 1957. It hosts a programme of contemporary art exhibitions, learning activities and music for the benefit of the public.
Kettle’s Yard is an exempt charity as part of the University of Cambridge. We receive around 45% of our running costs from the University of Cambridge and Arts Council England. Every year Kettle's Yard must raise the remaining 55% from a combination of fundraising and income. All donations both large and small make a difference to what we are able to do. For example, a gift of £500 supports the conservation of a small painting in the collection; a gift of £1 buys 10 paintbrushes for our education programme.
Kettle’s Yard: Looking Ahead, is a major re-development of Kettle’s Yard, due to start in September 2015. This significant project will create a new education wing, environmentally controlled galleries, and better, more accessible services for visitors, including a cafe. It will allow us to renew the gallery so that it can continue to inspire successive generations with a love of the visual arts and music.
