Potfest - more pots than you can shake a stick at

Potfest in the Peaks (Bakewell)

Potfest organise some of the largest pottery events in the UK. Usually they're a huge distance away but this year they're putting one on in Bakewell, which is just about do-able.

There's a massive variety of styles and standards of potters and ceramicists, so lots to see. As it's open to anyone it's quite a different show to Earth & Fire at Rufford, if you've ever been to that. Next year I might even try to sell some pots there but this year I'm just doing a reccy and enjoying a good peruse.

Details are at: http://www.potfest.co.uk/potfestpeak.htm

I'm going to have a look on Sunday. I'll leave at 11am and can pick up folk as I pass through the city centre if you want a lift. Most likely returning to Nottingham around 4 or 5pm.

If you're making your own way there I'll send you my number so you can text me to meetup at a cafe or something once we've got our bearings.

Oh, and the stick idea was just a joke. Please don't wave a stick at the pots. And leave the bull at home :)

Cheers
Liam

    Hi Liam...I'm quite new in meeting up, and in UK as well...Do you think to visit a pottery fair can be nice for a foreigner? :)

      How about just around the corner from the station, in front of the magistrates court opposite the bus station on Canal Street, at 11.15? Look out for a silver Ford Focus. I'll send you my mobile number. Hasta mañana! :)

    Just thought I should warn everyone: it doesn't say so on the web but I found a flyer for the event which says there's a £3.50 entry fee
