Set in Stoke-on-Trent, the heart of the UK ceramics industry, the festival takes place in established venues and non-traditional spaces across the city. BCB has returned every two years since 2009, with the latest, its seventh iteration, in 2021.
For five weeks in September, Stoke plays host to British Ceramics Biennial festival with an ambitious programme of exhibitions, site-specific installations, events and hands on activities. We work with international, emerging and established artists to present new ideas, new works and new forms of expression with clay which extend our understanding and appreciation of contemporary ceramics. It is open to the public from Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Entry is free and there is no need to book.
