We’re busy getting ready for next week’s Open Days at the factory and wanted to share some useful information with our Collectors in advance.
If you weren’t able to get tickets for this year’s event, we’re really happy to announce that for the first time our Collectors Club Open Day piece (a Pink Figs ½ Pint Jug) will be available from the members area on emmabridgewater.co.uk from 10am on Tuesday 21st July (while stocks last). Please note that this piece is limited to one per Collector. We will also be running competitions on social media during the Open Days so please do keep an eye on the Members Page.
There’s a Q&A here which should answer some of the questions you might have and below is an agenda for the day, and some information that we think will be useful. The factory site and registration desk will open at 9am, and the gates to the Car Park will be open from 8:30am.
Our registration desk will open at 9am in the courtyard. Here you will find out everything you need to know about the day and be able to sign up for our factory tours and Old Bowl decorating too.
Special pieces – on sale from 10.30am in the Gift Shop
Like last year, you will pick a random number at the registration desk (which opens at 9am) and go into the Gift Shop in groups of 10 from 10.30am.
This means you don’t need to rush to get here; so less time spent queuing, and more time for a cup of tea in the courtyard! We know lots of you travel a long way to attend the Open Days, so as long as you’re there before lunch you will still get a Specials ticket at registration.
Best Dressed Dresser
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! Submit your entries in the café.
Old Bowl Decorating
If you’ve entered our Old Bowl decorating competition, please book a time in the decorating studio at Registration.
If you’ve got any questions before the day, please do get in touch by calling customer services on 0844 243 9266 or by emailing [email protected]
See you next week!
