Tours at British Ceramics Biennial at All Saints Church
We have a friendly and knowledgeable team who are offering tours of the British Ceramics Biennial at All Saints Church in Hanley. From weekend walk-up tours for individuals and small groups, to weekday tours for larger group tours and schools. These provide a more personal introduction to the installations created by 40 talented artists.
All Saints Church is fully accessible with ramps and free parking to the rear of the church. See below for information on dates and times, and links to the tours that require booking.
Free weekend walk-up tours (no booking required)
We will be doing 12 free 45-minute tours throughout the biennial. These will take place every Saturday and Sunday at 1pm, starting on Saturday 30 September to Sunday 5 November inclusive. There is no need to book – just turn up at All Saints Church five minutes before the tour starts at 1pm. These tours don’t have a cost, but please consider donating.
Weekday tours for groups (booking required)
We welcome all group sizes and there is no need to pre-book if you are 10 or more people. However, if you are a group of between 10 and 30, we do offer 45-minute tours with a BCB staff member, giving you a unique insight into the Biennial. These tours don’t have a cost, but please consider donating. Book soon to avoid disappointment.
