Longton schoolchildren to launch Jubilee ceramics contest


By StaffsLive Reporter: Children from a Longton school will kick off a competition to design a cup and saucer for the Queen.

Youngsters from St Gregory’s Primary School will create the first designs for the Tea for the Jubilee contest, which launches at Gladstone Pottery Museum on Monday (May 21).

Once the competition has ended, two winning designs will be recreated by a British manufacturer and presented to the Her Majesty.

The schools of both the winning designers will also receive a £2,500 prize fund, provided by the British Ceramic Confederation, to be spent on books and equipment in the design, technology, science or art departments.

Dr Laura Cohen, chief executive of the British Ceramic Confederation said: “The Tea for the Jubilee competition is a great opportunity for the ceramic industry to unite and show young people that it is vibrant and fit for the future.”
