The British Ceramics Biennial (BCB) is a festival of contemporary ceramics that takes place in Stoke-on-Trent. Initiated in 2009, BCB has grown to be the single largest ceramics event in the UK, a flagship cultural project for Stoke-on-Trent City Council, and a catalyst for regeneration. We present artworks from the UK’s leading ceramicists alongside work by international artists, in exhibitions and special events held across the city. BCB is underpinned by an exciting year-round programme of artists’ commissions, education and community engagement projects.

British Ceramics Biennial is proud to be an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation (NPO).

Donate

As a charity, we rely on donations from individuals, companies and grant-giving bodies to deliver British Ceramics Biennial and our community, health and schools programmes in Stoke-on-Trent. Your generous donation will ensure that we can continue to deliver our programmes in across the city.
