OUR FLAGSHIP EVENT SHOWCASING THE VERY BEST WORK FROM 100 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.

Take a look through our gallery of exhibitors below to preview the work of those joining us for this show.

POTTERS’ COMPETITION

At each of the Potfest shows, the potters are invited to enter a piece of their work that responds to a theme.

The theme for our potters’ competition at all of the 2022 Potfest events is:

Rooted in the past –
planted in the present.

Vote for your favourite on the day for a chance to win a free entry to all of the Potfest events for life with a Potfest Passport.
