We are pleased to add another amazing opportunity to our Winter Weekend Programme.  We have an exclusive invitation to a hands-on experience at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery. After lunch we will take a five minute stroll from the hotel to the Museum where  we are offered a Sunday afternoon filled with discovery and discussion as we get to handle some of the rare and wonderful objects in the reserve collection.  And the best part?  This amazing opportunity is available to all WinterWeekenders at no extra cost.

Our distinguished panel of speakers, including Miranda Goodby, Jonathan Gray, Pat Halfpenny, Errol Manners, and Ben Miller, will be sharing their passion for pottery and porcelain covering topics from the London marketplace to collectors’ cabinets.
