TR REGISTER:STOKE ON TRENT GROUP
FULL DETAILS & BOOKING FORM
STOKIE 'POTS, PITS & PEAK' WEEKENDER, - Cars, Kilns & Fun – A TR event with a difference.
20th to 23rd July 2018 Based in Stoke on Trent.
Now I have got your attention, just read on a little more and you may find that this 'TR' event with a bit of a difference may be something that you and yours will enjoy. It's a visit to an urban location rather than a countryside venue with all the differences that, that will entail. Oh yes, and everybody will call you 'Duck' !
In December 2017 Stoke on Trent missed out on becoming the UK City of Culture for 2021, it lost out to Coventry, the home of our beloved cars so I suppose it wasn't all bad. However, we as a group believe that Stoke on Trent does have something to offer TR Register members and so we have put together a 'City of Culture' visit all of our own!
It's not an obvious place to come and visit with your TR, however, if you like Industrial heritage, crocs (our name for ceramics) and superb roads, (yes, really!) and good company, you just might enjoy our Stokie weekend.
We have arranged visits to a couple of pottery museums and factories including tours to see how the pots are made and also a mining museum with an underground tour. We are including a factory tour of Middleport Pottery (www.middleportpottery.org ) on the Monday morning, where the TV series 'Great British throw down' was filmed and home to Burleighware.
We are located very close to the 'Peak District' and have arranged runs out on some fantastic roads, taking in some historic places of interest.
It is our intention to entertain those of you who come along, but there will also be the opportunity to learn a little more about the places, people, and history of the area along the way.
We have suggested some local accommodation for Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, however we are flexible and anyone interested can opt 'in' or 'out' of any days, nights or parts of the event to suit their needs.
A timetable, details of activities and booking form is attached.
If you are interested please complete the booking form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org , or post to the address on the form.
We have not set a limit on numbers as yet, however it will be on a 'first come, first served' basis
We look forward to hearing from you soon (duck) ………
