Hiscox’s world-renowned art collection opens for two days only with proceeds going to local domestic abuse charity IDAS

On  Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th March, the York based insurer Hiscox is opening the doors of its iconic building on Peasholme Green to the public to showcase its world-renowned art collection, with proceeds from the event going to the local domestic abuse charity IDAS.

The collection includes a decommissioned Soviet/US flying space lab, called the Spirit of Collaboration, in the impressive atrium and pieces by influential artists with Yorkshire connections including David Hockney, Henry Moore, Harland Miller and Michael Lyons.

This is a unique opportunity to view important artworks that are not usually on public display.

There are three guided tours each day over the weekend, at 10.30am, 1pm and 3pm, with each tour lasting around 90 minutes. Tickets, available through Eventbrite, cost £10 each with all proceeds supporting IDAS’ vital, life-saving services.

Hiscox will be matching the total funds raised.

If you are worried that you or someone you know may be experiencing abuse you can call IDAS’ helpline on 03000 110 110 or email info@idas.org.uk.
