Museum Refurbishment

A gentle soft opening took place on 1st June.  The £1.7M gallery refurbishment is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and as well as featuring the skills and workforce that made Royal Worcester famous it triumphs the pride associated with production.  Over 200 ex-factory workers have shared their living memories and a number demonstrate their skills in the galleries on a regular basis.

Two of our most important objectives are to appeal to families and up and coming generations and in support of that we entered into a collaboration with the High Street fashion Store OASIS last summer to deliver a 28-piece clothing range based on designs from our archives. We have just returned from RHS Malvern Spring Garden Show where we promoted the soft reopening in June and this autumn we are joining forces with Meadow Arts to mount an exhibition of contemporary porcelain makers who will be using the collections as inspiration for their works.  Another delightful, and already popular display, is the ‘Family Parlour’ where children are encouraged to take inspiration from the displays and create their own stories.
