get ready for bigger & better

Last year’s Stoke on Clay Festival, our first, attracted more than 15,000 people to venues across the city. Over thirty established and upcoming creators displayed and sold their work. Renowned local artists demonstrated their skills and gave visitors a chance to try their hand.

Running from 07 September – 19 October, this year’s festival promises to be even bigger and better with more exhibitors and an exciting programme of events at inspiring venues across the city, including Spode Museum Trust, Brampton Museum, Clay College, Lost & Found, Barewall Gallery and Stoke Minster.
