Join In

Come and 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.

Did you work at Spode?
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.

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.

Volunteering Opportunities in 2019:
The Heritage Centre is looking for people to join its great team of volunteers.

If you would like to find out more please send an email or telephone - details on the Contact Us page.

You don't need to be a former Spode worker or even have any knowledge of ceramics.  The Centre is just looking for enthusiastic and friendly people who want to help promote the amazing collection and the history of the Spode factory. 

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