Nicci is Head of Visitor Services at Cambridge University Botanic Garden, and interim Chair of the Friends of Kettle’s Yard, having been a Friends’ Committee member since 2011.
Nicci was an international finance solicitor at Linklaters in London and Paris for many years, before deciding to change tack and study photography at the then-London College of Printing. This was followed by a decade establishing and running a retail business in the Cambridge area, before joining the Botanic Garden in 2011.
Nicci first visited Kettle’s Yard as an undergraduate. Her interest in Jim Ede’s unique legacy was piqued irrevocably and she has been a supporter of Kettle’s Yard in many ways since moving back to Cambridge, including as an ‘occasional regular’ House and gallery invigilator before the redevelopment project in 2015.
Nicci says ‘It’s a privilege to be leading the Friends at this juncture. The Friends, and I personally, look forward to continuing to support Kettle’s Yard in all its activities.’
