The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery


The museum offers unique venue hire spaces for corporate and private functions. These include a 300-seater theatre fully equipped with internet access, laptop projection and sound and lighting facilities.

The two meeting rooms provide intimate spaces for talks and training sessions and are fitted out with a projector to allow for PowerPoint presentations.

Outside of public opening hours, galleries are also available to hire for a more immersive experience. This includes the new Spitfire Gallery and adjacent Violet’s Café which can provide catering for any event. The external landscaping around the gallery also provides an exclusive backdrop for functions in the summer months.

If you are looking for something different which highlights the heritage of the local area then the museum is the perfect choice. The museum can offer formal hire for delegates and guests with the added bonus of enjoying the museum displays and exhibitions during breaks and intervals.
