What better way to show your mum how special she is to you than with a day at World of Wedgwood? On Mother’s Day, our chefs put together two menus to suit all tastes. Visitors could either dine in the Wedgwood Tea Room and enjoy a delectable afternoon tea featuring finger sandwiches, dainty cakes and fancies. Or visit the Dining Hall, for a hearty three course Sunday lunch. Every mum who dined with us on Mother’s Day received a Wedgwood keepsake. Additionally, we offered free admission to the Wedgwood Museum and Wedgwood Factory Tour to mums on the 6th March 2016.

 

At World of Wedgwood we decided that one day of romance just wasn’t enough, so we had a Valentine’s Day weekend instead! Our Valentine’s Day weekend provided visitors with a special Valentine’s Afternoon Tea in our Tea Room for those who like to combine romance and luxury. Visitors enjoyed a Champagne and strawberry cocktail on arrival then indulged in a selection of freshly cut Valentine’s sandwiches and mouth-watering pastries and fancies and chose from a specially selected Valentine Tea menu, for just £25 per person.

Taking inspiration from one of the most significant objects relating to the First World War in the Wedgwood Museum - The Peace Medallion - we invited visitors to World of Wedgwood during the February half term holidays to make their very own Wedgwood Plaque using the traditional method of applied ornamentation.

Perfect for all ages, visitors were able to roll out their clay, cut it to shape and apply decoration in their own unique style.  They then had the option to take their finished plaque home or leave it with the team at World of Wedgwood to be fired in the kiln.

During December 2015, we hosted an array of exciting festive activities to create the perfect build up to Christmas for our visitors of all ages.

Children were able to send a special message to Father Christmas by making paper teacup and teapot decorations in the Decorating Studio, and created their very own Snow Crystal Christmas Wishes. These were then hung on the World of Wedgwood’s magical indoor willow tree ready for Father Christmas’s elves to collect.

On the 5th and 6th December 2015, World of Wedgwood invited visitors to have a go at throwing their own pot free of charge, in association with BBC’s Get Creative: Hey Clay!. Hey Clay! is a national event which ran from 4th - 6th November 2015, and encourages people across the country to get creative with clay and throw their own pot. It was an incredibly successful event, and over 80% of our visitors decided to keep their pot and have it fired, to keep as a souvenir. Who knows, maybe a future Great Pottery Thrown Down contestant was among them!

On Monday 16th November 2015, World of Wedgwood team representatives attended the Enjoy Staffordshire Awards at Drayton Manor Theme Park, and we’re incredibly proud to announce that we won three awards! Best Tourism Experience of the Year Gold Award, Tea Room/ Coffee Shop of the Year Gold Award and the Taste of Staffordshire for the Wedgwood Tea Room Silver Award. These achievements have automatically submitted us into the Visit England awards which will take place in London in March 2016.
