Coach visit: Stoke-on-Trent and The Staffordshire Hoard
- The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery |
A special event to support the Appeal launched by The Art Fund to save the Staffordshire Hoard for the West Midlands. £3.3 million needs to be raised by 17 April, and all profits from this visit will go towards the Appeal.
Visit the stunning Wedgwood Museum, winner of The Art Fund Prize in 2009, followed by a private Art Fund view of the Bethesda Chapel. Continue to the Potteries Museum in Hanley for a private view, out of hours, where 80 significant items from the Staffordshire Hoard are on display, including some not previously shown. A second exhibition on display here, 'Building Jerusalem: Bethesda Chapel Reborn', relates to the earlier visit to Bethesda, one of the larget non-Conformist Chapels outside London.
