Sat 27 May - Sun 4 Jun May Half Term Fairy Tale Fun
Thu 8 - Sat 10 Jun Stoke on Trent Literary Festival


Visit the Emma Bridgewater factory during May half term for an imaginative week of activities, tours and quizzes to celebrate the joy of books and reading.

There will be Fairy Tale themed decorating studio activities including the opportunity to 'Tell a tale on a plate' where you can use sponges from favourite fairy tales such as Cinderella and Jack and the Bean Stalk to create your own design on a plate. Book your decorating studio session in advance to ensure availability.

Throughout the week visitors can follow the fairy tale trail around the factory and enter a design-a-plate competition to win a family Factory Experience Day.

And the popular factory tours will take place at regular intervals, so that you can see behind the scenes how Emma Bridgewater pottery is hand made and decorated.
