Events and News


Retired workers from the pottery industry are invited to share memories, skills and conversation at a fun and friendly event right in the heart of the world's ceramic industry. Starting on Friday 16th June, the monthly ‘meet and greet’ session will be a celebration of those who helped make The Potteries world-famous.

These sessions are a fantastic opportunity for retired pottery workers or those from associated industries to celebrate Stoke's proud local history, make new friends and reconnect with old ones over free tea, coffee and cake!

The sessions will take place at the Spode Museum Trust Heritage Centre on the third Friday of every month starting on Friday 16th June 2017, at 11:00am.

Please SHARE and spread the world to anyone you know who may be interested!


We are looking for people to join our fantastic team of volunteers to help us shape the exciting future of the Heritage Centre. 

If you would like to find out more please send us a message and we will get right back to you.  

You don't need to be a former Spode worker or even have any knowledge of ceramics. We're just looking for enthusiastic and friendly people who want to help us promote our amazing collection and the wonderful heritage of our site.

We are also always looking for demonstrators to join our highly skilled team of  painters, guilders and printers. If you have any time to spare and would enjoy sharing your skills with our visitors for a few hours a week or even just for special events please let us know.

A great way of meeting new people and working as part of a friendly team. Ideal if you are interested in gaining work experience in the heritage sector.
