Thursday 23rd January or
Thursday 6th February
A guided tour of the Fitzwilliam's stunning new exhibition which explores the art of food in the early modern period. As well as an array of wonderful paintings, the exhibition displays many other rarely seen treasures from the museum's collection as well as loans from colleges and other institutions. One of the highlights of the exhibition are a number of historical reconstructions with food at their centre including a Jacobean sugar banquet, a European feasting table and a Georgian confectioner's workshop. Whether you are feasting or fasting in the new year, make sure you don't miss this opportunity to see the exhibition. The tour will be led by Sarah Burles.

Thursday 12th March
We are delighted to be able to offer another private visit to Kettles Yard with early entry to the house before it opens to the public. This gives us the opportunity to savour the peace and tranquillity that Jim Ede sought when he created a home for his collection of modern art in Cambridge in the 1950s. For Jim Ede, Kettles Yard reflected "a way of life" and his unique vision resonates to this day. During the visit we will also explore the new spaces created by award winning Jamie Fobert Architects and view the temporary exhibition of works by the feminist artist Linder.
Cost: £35 including refreshments
