Griff Rhys Jones champions Fitzwilliam Museum’s bid for Gulbenkian Prize for Museum of the Year 2005

Comedian, writer, presenter and broadcaster Griff Rhys Jones has lent his support to the Fitzwilliam Museum’s bid for the Gulbenkian Prize for Museum of the Year.

Griff - who went to Emmanuel College in the early 1970s - is a frequent visitor to Cambridge and to the Fitzwilliam, of which he is a keen supporter. "If only all towns could have such an accessible cultural treat as the Fitzwilliam," he said. "I head straight there; I love the eclectic collection of collections. The obsessions of personal choice keep popping up and I always find something new to appreciate."
