A ÂŁ3.5m crowdfunding campaign, with contributors including David Hockney, has helped preserve Derek Jarman's cottage. The campaign was started by actress Tilda Swinton.

"The campaign’s success means the Art Fund can purchase the cottage, conserve and maintain it, and fund a permanent public programme that will include residencies for artists, academics, writers, filmmakers and gardeners. There will also be small “by appointment” tours for members of the public."

Jarman’s archive from the cottage – notebooks, sketchbooks, letters, drawings and photographs – will be looked after by Tate Britain.
