2021 COVID UPDATE
Last year we had to make the difficult decision to postpone our Festival of Ceramics to September 2021.
Instead we hosted a free online event in September 2020 so that you could have the chance of getting acquainted with our fabulous exhibitors and hopefully buy a pot or two.
We had initially rescheduled our Festival of Ceramics at Exeter Racecourse to September 24th & 25th 2021.
This event takes several months and a significant amount of investment to organise and plan so when the Government announced on June 14th this year that a) the lifting of restrictions would be delayed a further month and b) they were anticipating a further wave and possible restrictions again in September 21 we had to think long and hard about the viability of hosting an event of this size under a cloud of such uncertainty. The bottom line is that, with the distinct possibility of having to pull the event at the last minute, the financial risk for both organiser and exhibitors was too great, especially after such a testing year. So with a heavy heart and much reluctance we have moved the event to 2022.
Myself and my host of talented artists and makers sincerely hope to meet you all in real life at some point.
A huge thank you to the team at Exeter Racecourse for their understanding and flexibility.
With fingers and toes crossed.

Once Upon a Time …
Harking back to 2019 when we were able to safely mingle in real life.
The event took place in the Historic Pannier Market in Barnstaple, North Devon.
For 2020 we made the decision to move our event to a new and more central location: Exeter Racecourse.
We have sadly had to postpone both 2020 and 2021 events due to the pandemic and Government restrictions.
We hope to meet you soon.
