Distinctively Staffordshire Exhibition 

Distinctively Staffordshire

The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance

This fascinating new exhibition is a chance to explore some of the distinctive and often extraordinary stories, objects and documents from across our county.

What comes into your mind when you think of Staffordshire? Is it the pottery industry based in Stoke on Trent, or is it Staffordshire Oatcakes, Staffordshire bull terriers, or even the M6?

Staffordshire is made up of a diverse landscape of customs, local identities, industries and people, all of which have been shaped and changed over the centuries. Trade, travel, traditions and even tea-drinking feature in this celebration of everything that makes Staffordshire an exciting and unique county.

Distinctively Staffordshire features the collections of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Archive Service, the William Salt Library and the Staffordshire County Museum.

Family visitors can design a teapot and make an Abbots Bromley Horn Dance jig puppet. We would also like visitors to let us know what they think represents Staffordshire for them, and what we should be collecting to truly represent our wonderful county.

The exhibition opens at the Staffordshire Record Office, Eastgate Street, Stafford on Tuesday 20th August from 10am and continues until Friday 27th September.
