Keats house pricing review (Registered Charity No 1053381) - 2019/20

Report of the Director of Open Spaces.


The Committee considered a report of the Director of Open Spaces concerning the proposed changes to admission prices to Keats House, and private hire rates for Keats House and Ten Keats Grove for the financial year 2019/20. Members noted that this item had been discussed at length at the Keats House Consultative Committee on 5 October 2018:


During the discussion on this item, the following points were noted:



  • There was some difference of opinion expressed about the senior concessions rate but support generally for concessions, as they could attract a more diverse and wider audience beyond the local area.


  • It was noted that the concession age applied to those in full time Education, so that students who turn 18 during the school year would not be excluded.


  • A Member advised that reducing the senior rate would encourage senior citizens to visit and bring their grandchildren; demonstrating an investment in younger generations.


  • Members noted that Keats House did not routinely take addresses, but general face-to-face surveys conducted in the Museum captured countries and postcodes. A postcode was also required to receive the Camden preferential rate.


  • Keats House would continue to work in partnership with the National Trust and the Art Fund


RESOLVED – That Members approve the proposed admission price and private hire rates outlined in the report as detailed in Appendix 2.
