Celebrating it's 10 year anniversary, the British Ceramics Biennial is the UK’s premiere ceramics festival.

The British Ceramics Biennial (BCB) launched in 2009 with a festival celebrating and showcasing contemporary ceramics from across the world.  Set in Stoke-on-Trent – the heart of the UK ceramics industry, the festival took place in established venues and non-traditional spaces across the city. It returned in 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 and now it returns in 2019 for the sixth time.

An expanded programme of exhibitions, installations and events featuring more than 300 contemporary artists should ensure that the 10th anniversary of this hugely popular free festival is celebrated in fine style.

Taking place across six venues, the event has as its centrepiece the vast China Hall, located in the former Spode Factory.

The Hall features 13 exhibitions and hosts not only a number of workshops but also the festival’s two flagship shows. The first, entitled Award, features new work by 10 leading ceramic artists, all of whom are vying for prize money of £10,000.

The second, Fresh, showcases a selection of pieces by some of the UK’s most promising ceramics graduates.

Work by celebrated artists from other ceramic biennials around the world is also available to view.
