What do a giraffe, a frog, a shark and a robin have in common? They all have a skeleton. More than that, they all have a backbone: they're vertebrates. Visit the Museum of Zoology for a day of free hands-on activities inspired by skeletons. Explore our temporary exhibition 'Growing a Backbone: The Rise of the Vertebrates'. Follow our skeleton trail to take a closer look at the amazing animals on display. Handle real bones and see what they're made of. Play with puzzles and stories, and find out how skeletons grow. PLUS make your very own 'Book of Spines' 

Free. No need to book.

Since 2011 Issam Kourbaj’s artwork has responded to the ongoing conflict in Syria, and reflects on the suffering of his fellow Syrians and the destruction of his cultural heritage. This exhibition presents key works from this period alongside a new series which explores themes of loss, memory and renewal.

The exhibition – the artist’s largest to date – will include installation, sculpture, performance and works on paper. Kourbaj will be present at intervals throughout the exhibition, which will evolve as he adds to the displays.

Join us at Kettle’s Yard for special performances by artist Issam Kourbaj to accompany Issam Kourbaj: Urgent Archive. These performances will mark the 13th anniversary of the conflict in Syria.

Join us online for a conversation between Richard Calvocoressi, who knew Jim Ede after he moved to Edinburgh in the 1970s, and Laura Freeman, author of the new biography Ways of Life: Jim Ede and the Kettle’s Yard Artists. They will discuss Jim Ede, Kettle’s Yard and the origins of her acclaimed book.

National Treasures: Botticelli in Cambridge brings together a selection of renaissance works from our own collection alongside the Italian artist’s iconic painting of lovers — Venus, the goddess of love and Mars, the god of war.

The arrival of Venus and Mars in Cambridge presents a rare opportunity to see the work outside of London. Until now, the painting has never before left its home at the National Gallery where it’s become one of their most popular and well-loved works since it was bought in 1874.

Sometimes seen as an eccentric figure or lone genius, William Blake’s Universe is the first exhibition to explore Blake’s boundless imagination in the context of wider trends and themes in European art including romanticism, mysticism and ideas of spiritual regeneration.
