“The original Potfest Flagship showcasing the very best work from 90 selected artists, chosen from throughout the UK, Europe and beyond.

All with very distinctive, individual styles. Set in the magnificent backdrop of Hutton-in-the-Forest on the edge of the beautiful Lake District National Park.

Potfest in the Park takes place under large marquees on parkland in front of this magnificent country house. The potters’ special competition pieces are displayed on the lawns in front of the house, juxtaposing ancient architecture and modern ceramics.

As well as hosting Potfest in the Park, Hutton-in-the-forest is a cultural destination in itself. With its historic house, walled garden, topiary terraces and woodland walks it makes a great day out.”

I look forward to taking my latest pots up to Cumbria for this show. It is always a pleasure to take part in this special event.
