This year, we are going to initially limit Collectors to booking for one day only when the tickets first go on sale. This is to give as many Collectors as possible the chance to attend the Open Days. Any tickets remaining in May can be bought as ‘second day’ tickets.
If you have any questions or special dietary requirements please email [email protected] with the subject line Collectors Club Open Days 2015 and the date which you have booked.
We’ve been busy planning this year’s Collectors Club Open Days which are taking place at the Emma Bridgewater Factory in Stoke-on-Trent on Tuesday 21st & Wednesday 22nd July 2015.
For those that haven’t been before, our Collectors Club Open Days give us a chance to thank you for your enthusiasm and support, and are a great way for our Collectors to meet each other too.
We have two ticket options this year; £15 and £25 per person. For £15 you will get a delicious lunch, a factory tour, free apron decorating and tea and coffee served all day. For £25 you will get all of this, plus the chance to enter this year’s competition…
The Old Bowl was one of the shapes in Emma’s first collection, so with 30 years of inspiration to draw on, we’re inviting you to decorate an Old Bowl at this year’s Open Days. The entries will be judged by Emma and Matthew, and the winners announced each day. As always there are fabulous prizes to be won, and all entries will be glazed, fired and posted out ready to be displayed on your dresser at home. Entry into the competition costs £10 and is included in the £25 ticket.
As we’re celebrating 30 Years of Emma Bridgewater it seems only right that this year’s Best Dressed Dresser competition follows that theme – we can’t wait to see what our 30th birthday means to you and your dresser!
Planning your visit We know that lots of our Collectors Club members travel a long way to attend the Open Days, so like last year we have made some changes to the way we run the event. Special pottery pieces will be sold in the Gift Shop from 10.30am and will be limited to one piece per person before lunchtime. Access to the Gift Shop will be based on a random number picked from a teapot at registration, rather than on a first-come-first-served basis.
As always, there’s lots to do while you’re with us – you can go on a factory tour, browse in our Factory Shop and Gift Shop, or just relax in the Cafe or garden with a cup of tea. There will also be exclusive pottery pieces available to buy on the day.
