Stoke-upon-Trent, where the spring events are taking place, is one of the six towns of the city of Stoke-on-Trent. We know, it's a little confusing but each town has a distinct identity.
Well-known as The Potteries the city has lots of interesting and fun places to visit, from Waterworld to the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery hosting the Staffordshire Hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold.
