What’s different about this year’s Collectors Club events? 
In recent years our Sample Sales have become increasingly popular among our Collectors, so we are keen to host as many of these events as we can throughout the year. We will still be holding events in July, traditionally when our Summer Open Days would have been held, but instead of producing Special product for these days we will be selling Samples. 

Why have you published all the dates at the beginning of the year? 
As the format of the eight Sample Sales will be the same, we suggest you pick one event rather than trying to get tickets for all of them – we’d love to see as many different Collectors at our Sample Sales and this gives everyone a fairer chance of getting a ticket to their chosen event. 

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. 

What products will be on sale at the events? 
The Samples we sell at our Sample Sales come from the designing of our upcoming ranges, so it’s a great opportunity to buy some unique pieces of pottery to add to your collection. When other stock becomes available that we think our Collectors might like, like Cats and Dogs and Archive pieces, we will sell these alongside the Samples too. 

How will tickets be allocated? 
Tickets will be sold on a first- come-first-served basis and will be available to buy from midday on the dates above. Tickets will continue to be sold through Eventbrite and the links will be posted on the Member’s Area of the website the week before. Tickets will 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. 

How many tickets will be available for each event? 
We will sell around 100 tickets for each of our Collectors Club events this year. 

We hope it’s helpful to give our customers advance notice of our events for this year, please keep an eye on the Members Page for more information.
