We’ve now nearly finished emptying the house and moving all items into storage or to other off site exhibitions. SDC Construction Group have been formally appointed as contractors for the development and we are all working to prepare the site for building work to begin. Signs have gone up around the building and in the windows to explain to passers by what we’re up to. The staff team are also moving this week, away from Kettle’s Yard to temporary offices off Mill Lane.
We are trying to find the best place for every part of the collection in the house at Kettle’s Yard, including the plants. Cambridge University Botanic Garden have kindly agreed to care for the plants while we are closed. There have always been plants in the house at Kettle’s Yard and they are an integral part of the collection.
