Local Visit: Worcester Porcelain Museum @ Worcester Porcelain Museum
Oct 20 @ 1:45 pm – 5:00 pm

Dr John Wall founded the Worcester Porcelain Company in 1751, as we heard in our July talk. Sadly, the manufacturing of china in Worcester finished in 2006, but the Porcelain Museum continues to pay homage to its magnificent heritage with the largest collection of Worcester Porcelain in the world. A recent £1.7 million Heritage Lottery grant has enabled the museum to show off its displays to best advantage. The visit includes an introductory film featuring Henry and John Sandon and a talk giving a ‘behind the scenes’ perspective. Refreshments are available for purchase at the museum.

Trip leader: Clive Hooper

Cost: £9 per person. Maximum number 60.

Arrive: 1.45pm for 2pm start. (Own transport)

Book by sending a Booking Form and cheque as instructed on the form.
