Wallingford BunkFest

1st – 3rd September, 10am – 5pm

On the banks of the Thames in South Oxfordshire, Wallingford BunkFest is a free-access community festival providing a unique, family-friendly celebration with something for everyone. Live music is dotted around the town in pubs and small venues with the large stage and beer tent on the Kinecroft

Here at The Potter's Wheel we are also going all out. The wheels will be tucked away, bags of clay shifted and the floor scrubbed. The whole workspace is going to be transformed into one large retail area to celebrate and welcome the switch to our new group of talented local artisans and of course to say goodbye and thank you to the current group whose work has so beautifully decorated our walls for the last four months.

We're also looking forward to seeing our new friends the Plantpot Heads arriving in the shop hot out of the kiln!

Opening times:
30th & 31st - Closed (Transforming the shop)
BUNKFEST - 1st, 2nd & 3rd - 10am - 5pm
