Perfect for a day out this half term, Harewood House, Leeds, kick-starts the year with the extraordinary exhibition ‘Objectivity: the art of useful things’, an eclectic mix of objects collected by artist and collector David Usborne. Usborne’s fascination for useful objects he considers ‘accidental masterpieces’ has created a visual exhibition which captures the imagination of all ages. Catch the exhibition early and visitors have the chance to enter a competition during half term (16th – 24th Feb) to win a day ticket for their family or a £25 voucher to spend in the Courtyard Café, by guessing the use of a mysterious object. Entry to the exhibition is included in a Grounds & Below Stairs ticket, and free to Harewood members. David Usborne’s extraordinary collection of useful tools will be on display in the Servants' Hall at Harewood until 1st September

For more details of David Usborne’s Objectivity, visit the Harewood website or visit the Objectivity website  …'A Designer's Book of Curious Tools' (Thames and Hudson 2010) will be available to purchase at Harewood.

Grounds & Below Stairs Ticket Prices: Adult £10, Senior £9, Child £6, Family £30
