MACE SUPPLIES FOOTAGE FOR EXHIBITION AT GLADSTONE POTTERY MUSEUM ABOUT SPIRITUALISM IN STOKE-ON-TRENT


Spiritualism in Stoke on Trent is a new exhibition at the Gladstone Pottery Museum that will explore how spiritualism is mapped across the historical and contemporary fabric of the city of Stoke.

Spiritualism has been part of Stoke-on-Trent’s history since the 1870s and is a philosophy and religion based on the belief that the soul lives on after the death of the physical body. The project looks to unearth the spiritualist past and present of Stoke by bringing together together stories, objects and photographs from attendees of Spiritualist churches in Stoke-on-Trent. This exhibition has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and produced by the Open University in collaboration with Gladstone Pottery Museum and the Spiritualist Churches of Burslem, Fenton and Longton.

When: Tuesday 1 September 2015 – Saturday 31 October 2015 10:00 – 16:00

Where: Gladstone Pottery Museum, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire

Admission: Free
