There will be a ‘Burslem Weekend’ as part of this autumn’s British Ceramics Biennial (BCB), a six-week festival celebrating the very best of Stoke-on-Trent ceramics and creativity.
The programme for the 2013 festival – which runs from 28th September to 10th November – was unveiled recently and includes two days of activity in Burslem with partners Steelite, The Prince’s Trust and Clayground Collective.
The date of Burslem Weekend – or what exactly will be going on in the town over the two days – has yet to be announced. Full details will be revealed soon.
This year’s BCB will bring together 150 artists through exhibitions, installations and events that draw on the heritage and creative edge of Stoke-on-Trent. There’s a huge amount planned across the city and you can find out more HERE.
Barney Hare Duke and Jeremy Theophilus, co-directors of British Ceramics Biennial, said: “For this third British Ceramics Biennial, we want to encourage, provoke and engage our visitors. As well as a world-class line-up of exhibitions and creative collaborations, for 2013 we’ve increased the number of events that encourage hands-on involvement as a way of getting people really engaged and experiencing the creative potential of ceramics.”
