Diary Dates 2018:

Summer Opening Times

From w/c Mon 16th July – we will move to our summer opening days in the tea-room & gallery which are Thurs-Sun 11-4 (with Pottery Trial Classes also bookable those days).

Aug Bank Holiday Weekend Fundraising BBQ

Sunday 26th August 2018 – Come and Join Us for a BBQ for a Good Local Cause from 5.30pm – (approx) 9.30pm in the courtyard garden @HotPotPottery.

This year our chosen (and very worthy) cause is a local Forest of Dean family charity called Nicky’s Giving Fund who raise funds in memory of Nicky Waycott and provide small grants enabling projects to help physically disabled children and young adults up to the age of 25 years old chase their dreams and achieve their potential.

We will also be working with a local organic farm called Plump Hill Farm from Mitcheldean who will be supplying all the meat for the BBQ (NB: vegetarian options will be provided if requested when booking).

Tickets are just £15.00 per person (for BBQ, soft drinks and dessert) and the event will be BYO (we will provide glasses).

We will donate 1/3 of turnover to Nicky’s Giving Fund and further donations can also be made on the night. We will also be holding a ‘Sealed Bid Auction’ on the night to raise further funds & we have some great prizes.

We hope you will join us for an evening of eating, drinking and we are sure some music will make an appearance at some point!
