What products will be on sale at the 2020 events?
This year we will mainly sell Samples at our three Collectors Club events. When other stock becomes available that we think our Collectors might like, like Cats and Dogs, we will sell these alongside the Samples too.
Will you announce any further dates during the year?
Depending on the available Sample stock, we may be able to announce new dates during the year. We will give you plenty of notice of any new event dates via the Collectors Club page of the website.
How much are the tickets and what does this include?
Tickets cost £25 per person and each Collector can buy up to two named tickets. Tickets are not transferrable and the names on the tickets must match the attendees on the day.
The tickets include free refreshments all day, a delicious afternoon tea-style lunch, free decorating in our studio and a goody bag. This year we will also be offering our attendees an additional 15% off pottery in the Factory shop too.
How will tickets be allocated?
Tickets will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis and will continue to be sold through Eventbrite. The ticket links will be posted on the Member’s Area of the website the week before. Please be aware that tickets for our Sample Sale events sell out very quickly, but we will continue to operate a waiting list via Eventbrite.
How many tickets will be available for each event?
We will sell around 80 tickets for each of our Collectors Club events this year
Can I bring a friend, partner or children with me?
The Sample Sale, free decorating, goody bags and lunch are only available to ticket holders on the day, but our café is always open if you do need to bring someone with you. Children are welcome and you can either bring a packed lunch or buy a children’s lunchbox from our Café.
