Citizens of Somewhere with John Harris

Citizens of Somewhere with John Harris

Royal Stafford was more than happy to welcome back BBC Radio 4, this time with journalist John Harris. Managing Director, Norman Tempest along with other members of staff were interviewed by Harris about their life in Stoke-on-Trent and how working in Royal Stafford’s factory affected their outlook on Stoke’s historical industry of ceramics.

A seemingly decreasing industry due to China and Thailand’s mass ceramic production, we at Royal Stafford are proud to say that we are a large part of keeping the British ceramic industry alive. Using locally sourced materials, we make English ware for both UK homes and homes all across the globe.

Make sure you tune into BBC Radio 4’s “Citizens of Somewhere” to find out more about how working in the pottery industry has affected our lives.

    • Hello Pam, because the market is saturated with mugs and cups from China we do not try to compete.
