ANGLIAN POTTERS

The Undercroft is a space often overlooked by the general public - somewhere not as well known as other galleries. It’s an underground arts space which hosts an array of exhibitions throughout the year, located beneath the memorial gardens in front of City Hall. Head down the steps and you’ll see the space filled with amazing examples of pottery; over 75 potters will be showcasing their work. It’s free entry, too.

The Undercroft, 8-23 April. Find out more
