In September 2016, Turner Contemporary partnered with Margate’s GB Pizza Co as they introduced a new addition to the menu.
Their “We heart Turner Contemporary” pizza is topped with spinach, pine nuts, sultanas and pecorino cheese, and 50p from the sale of each pizza goes directly to the gallery’s learning programme.
Thanks to their enterprising initiative, GB Pizza Co have raised over £350 to date which will go towards materials, resources and outreach so that children and young people in Margate, Thanet and beyond will have the opportunity to discover new ways of seeing, learning and thinking at Turner Contemporary. Following the redesign of the restaurant this January 2017, the pizza will be available on an ongoing basis as GB Pizza Co continue to encourage their customers to eat for a good cause.
“Turner Contemporary, since it opened nearly six years ago, has been such a force for good in Margate – bringing over two million visitors to the town, as well as working with community groups and school children, and putting iconic pieces of art on our doorstep.” Lisa Richards, owner, GB Pizza Co
