And within seven miles; Keele Art Gallery; Newcastle Gallery (mostly watercolours and pots, naff), Alsager Arts Centre up at Manchester Uni's Alsager site in Stoke, and Moorlands Arts up in nearby Leek. And if that lot exhusts you - you've got the free world-class galleries of Manchester and Birmingham within an hour's train ride, you bloody whingers! Artists should get in with the Stoke Arts and Architecture Club, which puts on high-quality talks and events which go beyond the usual evening-class watercolours tat. There's also Staffordshire Art & Crafts Network, and the traditionalist Society of Staffordshire Artists. There are a huge number of academic art courses in and around Stoke; Staffordshire University's School of Art & Design / IRIS, International Centre for Women's Photography / Stoke Further Education College / Manchester Metropolitan University's Department of Contemporary Arts, Alsager Arts Centre, Stoke-on-Trent / Newcastle College - Faculty of Art and Creative Studies / Visual Arts at Keele University (about 5 miles from Stoke / Frink School of Figurative Sculpture, Tunstall, Stoke on Trent / and the WEA's Wedgewood Memorial College.
  • Hanley museum and gallery is actually top-notch, regardless of if you're into pottery or not. Not much otherwise.
  • This is Stoke, the city where railings at a cost of 60000 were put up around the grass near the bus station in the name of art.
  • As severe lack of Art in Stoke-On-Trent. They are too interested in making yet another pottery museum.
  • the only art round here is FUCK OFF STOKE and stuff scribbled onto walls
  • Bedford Singers run a truly memorable classical music festival, check out:
  • Graffiti and abuse of Stokies to be found on walls throughout the City
  • The museum, about 5 minutes from the town centre, has the usual collection of rusty Roman belt buckles and an extensive collection of pots. It has the odd good travelling exhibition, though.
  • Hey Focus DIY now sells some pukka craft stuff if your into it
