The Garden Museum Raffle 2020: Win an afternoon inside Prospect Cottage

Enter the Garden Museum Raffle to win the chance to spend an afternoon inside Prospect Cottage, the former home of artist, filmmaker and gardener Derek Jarman.

The money raised from the raffle will support the Garden Museum’s exhibition Derek Jarman: My garden’s boundaries are the horizon. The raffle draw will now take place on Monday 21st September.

First Prize

One winner will spend an afternoon inside the Cottage with a guest. You will also have lunch at the famous Pilot Inn pub on Dungeness, with Amanda Wilkinson, Trustee, gallerist and guide to Jarman’s work as an artist.

The Museum will agree a date with the winner and the Keith Collins Memorial Trust, when government advice on travel and social distancing allows. 

Second Prize

Three runners-up will win a money plant (Crassula) cut from Derek Jarman’s very own money plant from his London studio.

Jarman acquired Prospect Cottage, a fisherman’s shack on the shingle, for £32,000, when he came across the building with a ‘For Sale’ sign while filming on the beach with Tilda Swinton and his partner Keith Collins. It was here, having been diagnosed with HIV, that he resolved ‘to get as much out of life as possible’ and begun to create his boundless garden beside a nuclear power station.

The Garden Museum has been granted unprecedented access to Prospect Cottage, which is not currently open to the public, thanks to the generosity of The Keith Collins Memorial Trust and Creative Folkestone.

Our spring exhibition has been mounted to support the campaign launched by the Art Fund to save Prospect Cottage for the nation: find out more
