Join In


There are lots of opportunities to get involved at the Heritage Centre, from events and activities, telling us about your experience of the factory, to volunteering or being a demonstrator.

News about events, talks, demonstrations and special open days is on our Events and News page.


Did you, or your relatives work at Spode?  We would love to talk to you about your time at the factory and to hear your memories and reminiscences. Perhaps we could arrange a special visit so that we can record your recollections to add to the permanent archive.

If you have photos of the Spode factory, housing, work or social life we would love to see them, and perhaps take a scanned copy to add to the records, if the people in your photos give their permission.

If you are looking for news of former colleagues why not post an enquiry on our Facebook page.


Were you a paintress?  A lithographer?  Could you talk to visitors about what you did at Spode?  If you have skills and might be interested in demonstrating them to visitors at the Centre, please give us a call or get in touch.


Volunteering is fun and you don't need to know all about Spode to start!  You just need to be good with people, keen to get involved and committed to providing a friendly welcome to visitors of all ages and backgrounds. 

There are a number of different roles at the Heritage Centre, and volunteering is a great chance to get out and meet some new people and old friends!  You might be a Spode fan, or you might want to keep active or learn some new skills.  Most of our volunteers join us for a morning or afternoon at a time, but you can adjust your hours to suit you.

Please email us - we would love to have a chat to you about the opportunities on offer. You can email us at or come along and see us any day when the Heritage Centre is open.
