New Exhibition for the Autumn

Stoke is famous for its pits & pots but who knew the secret history of Stoke Spiritualism? New exhibition at Gladstone Pottery Museum from 1 September to 31 October 2015.

"Most of our visitors know how important pits and pots are in the history of Stoke-on-Trent but in our new exhibition we're telling one of the untold stories of the everyday life of our city. 'Talking with the Dead - Spiritualism in Stoke-on-Trent' is an exhibition which looks at how the Spiritualist religion has played a significant role in Stoke-on-Trent’s history since 1870 and is free with admission in September and October. It has brought together memories, objects and photographs from three local spiritualist chuches, the Longton church being one of our neighbours. Whether you are a cynic, believer or just curious it offers an interesting look at a hidden past of out local area."
