    Details

    Grayson Perry In-Focus Display features three spotlight loans which will be displayed in the unique Arts & Crafts setting. Included are Melanie (2014) on loan from York Museums Trust (York Art Gallery), Mad Kid’s Bedroom Wall Pot (1996) on loan from the Crafts Council, and Christening Pot, on loan from a private collection. Christening Pot was an early private commission for Perry and is on show in Blackwell’s dining room. This is the first time this piece has ever been on public display.

    Benefits for Groups Save on our standard admission charge for groups of 12 or more. Visiting all three venues in one day may be too much, that’s why we allow groups to spread their visits over a 7 day period. To be eligible for the discount, all three visits must be made by the same group. FREE coach parking during your visit and a further two hours FREE coach parking at Abbot Hall, to see the historic town of Kendal. Coach welcomed by a member of staff. Pre-booked catering options with reserved seating. Bookable group talks, for differing interest and knowledge levels. Early visits starting at Blackwell before we open to the general public.
