Heritage Open Days at Middleport Pottery

Saturday, September 12, 2015 - 11:00 to 15:00

Why not banish those back-to-school blues by making the most of a free open day at Middleport Pottery? It takes place on Saturday, 12th September, from 11am-3pm and is part of the national Heritage Open Days festival.

Visitors can get exclusive behind the scenes access to the Pottery, including a close-up look of the Victorian steam engine that used to power the factory and is now the subject of a major restoration appeal. There will also be poetry recitals by Stoke-based poetry group City Voices£1 family craft workshops and competitions.

Heritage Open Days is a four-day festival celebrating England's local history that gives access to thousands of places usually closed to the public.
