UPDATE (6.08.2020) The Committee has had to make the difficult decision to cancel all remaining meetings for 2020. Our programme organiser has completed the marathon task of re-booking all speakers for next year’s programme including  the  Discovery Day with Will Farmer  which will now be held on November 18th 2021.

As Clair Hall is now closed, the committee are actively involved in finding an alternative venue for our monthly lectures. Please check this website for further updates. For detailed information of our membership, including visitor charges, ‘first visit free’,  forthcoming lectures and events, please email: enquiries@hhcg.org.uk 

Haywards Heath Ceramics Group was formed in 1983 by three ceramics enthusiasts. Their aim was to study the history and manufacture of pottery, porcelain, glass and enamels in all their diverse aspects. Over the years, the Group has thrived. We now have over one hundred members but still enjoy a very intimate and friendly atmosphere. Many of our Group have extensive collections, others just the odd pieces, but we all share the same enthusiasm for the subject. All our speakers are experts in their field, many of whom are very well known.
