Exhibitions and Events

There is an exciting new exhibition opening in one of the new Gallery spaces at the Heritage Centre on 21st October to 5th November 2017 by talented artists Andy Edwards, Nick Marsh and Philip Hardaker. The show is entitled Salon des Refusés.


During the Exhibition visitors are invited to wear the 'City of Culture 2021' hat.
This specially modelled piece by Philip Hardaker was made to celebrate the great ceramic tradition of Stoke on Trent.  Drop into the Exhibition and wear the hat, show your support and share your photographs!


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.
