Staffs Fringe Festival opened with a Big Lunch in Hanley Park.
We believe it is important to work with and support our local community partners.
We promote and contribute to many events including London Road Festival.

It gives a flavour of the creativity of Stoke on Trent.
Join the BCB at the Fringe Finale to make a ceramic flower and be part of a large-scale contemporary artwork at this years British Ceramics Biennial.
By making a ceramic forget-me-not flower , you’ll become part of the 194000 exhibition at the festival. 194000 will be a Stoke-on-Trent WW1 100th anniversary memorial to the men of the North Staffordshire Regiment who went to war 1914-18. The large ceramic-flower based installation will take over a large area of the festival and encourage visitors to get involved.
We will start with a walk down London Rd in Stoke from Boothen Gardens ST4 4BX at 6.30pm with Dave Parkes. Using old maps, history and serendipity.
At 7pm take part in a Creative Writing workshop with Caroline Butterwick at the Art Stop in Stoke town ST4 1BU
