EXPLORING MINTON: People, Places & Ceramics

Exploring Minton: 

A Celebration of People, Places & Ceramics

What:

Hartshill and Harpfields Occasions (HAHO), Potteries Heritage Society and Ceramic City Stories would like to invite you to join us for an exploration of the Minton legacy in Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire. We have used two walks to begin an initial community conversation about key ceramic production locations and examples of the family’s impact on Stoke and Hartshill’s historic built environment and social history.

What does Minton mean to you? Perhaps you or your family worked for Minton or one of the many connected companies? You might be the proud owner of a Minton tiled doorstep or hallway? Does your morning cuppa taste better from a Minton tea cup? You might simply be interested in Minton and want to find out more!  

This informal workshop is an invitation for more people to join the conversation and explore what a future celebration of Minton might focus on and look like. We would love you to join us!

When:

10:00am - 1:00pm Thursday 4th July

Where:

The Minton Centre, Minton St, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 7NW

(The Minton Centre is located immediately behind Holy Trinity Church, Hartshill, and may be accessed on foot through the churchyard, and by car from Minton Street. Car parking is available at the Centre, or on the car-park at the bottom of Vicarage Road).

Light refreshments will be available, though, as we plan to finish no later than 1.00pm, lunch will not be provided.
