NCS meetings are a great way to join our community of collectors and to share in their enthusiasm for pottery and porcelain.
There are residential seminars  in summer and winter, summer visits to private and/or public collections, and monthly one-day meetings from September to November and from February to May.

Monthly one-day meetings take place in different museums in the north of England. At present these mainly include the Potteries Museum, Stoke on Trent, the Grosvenor Museum, Chester, The National Museums, Liverpool and the Museum and Art Gallery, Doncaster. Each meeting has two lectures – one at 11.30 am and the other at 2.00 pm.  These meetings are free to members, you can join here,  if you are not a member but would like to attend please  let us know
