Decant of the collection 
The art works and objects have now all been carefully wrapped and taken out of the house. One of our favourite photographs is of the spiral of pebbles carefully wrapped and numbered for safe storage during the closure. Over one thousand objects have been individually condition checked, audited and packed, the curatorial team have done a great job!

With careful planning and care, Archivist Frieda Midgley has now moved all of the archive to Wolfson College. Thanks should go to Frieda and the team of volunteers who helped her with this move.

Office move
At the end of July all office staff relocated to offices at number 17 Mill Lane. Although we are all missing Kettle’s Yard we’re enjoying our new location – especially the proximity to some of the other University of Cambridge Museums and good coffee options!

Off site activities
New Rhythms at Harewood House
The New Rhythms tour to Harewood house is open and looking great in their spaces. The exhibition includes the contemporary commission and will run until the 1st of November.
Alfred Wallis at Modern Art, London
After a very successful show (4 stars in Timeout and lots of visitors) this beautiful display has been de-installed.
Beauty and Balance at the Fitzwilliam Museum
The display at the Fitzwilliam has now been installed, including the lemon on a pewter dish. We’ve been reading several tweets from visitors enjoying discovering a bit of Kettle’s Yard in the Fitzwilliam. You can find this display in the ceramics gallery just behind the café.
