With a month to go before Kettle’s Yard closes its doors to begin a major building project we’ve rounded up the top ten reasons you should visit before 22nd June.

1.     A warm welcome


Here’s what some recent visitors said about Kettle’s Yard staff:

‘Wonderful……..an eclectic and delightful art collection and a quite perfect living space…..all rounded and complemented by the friendly and knowledgeable staff….’

‘Rang the bell to a lovely, genuine welcome. We were made to feel relaxed although it was a busy day…Great that there are no labels, but someone unobtrusively on hand to answer questions.’

2.     New Rhythms


We’ve had a great response to our New Rhythms exhibition from visitors & critics so far, check out our reviews in The Spectator, The Telegraph and The Economist.  “…his dancers wrestled, his wrestlers danced. Everything was movement. And this show leaves the head delightedly spinning.” 4 star review, The Telegraph, March 2015

3.     Live Music
