Following the launch of our Staffordshire Story and placemaking identity in 2020, we have launched a series of Ambassador events to showcase exciting projects and success stories from businesses across Staffordshire. With a line-up of inspirational speakers, you’ll hear about the latest developments and businesses that are shaping our great county.

We are delighted to invite you to our July Staffordshire Ambassador Event: A Place of Culture, held at World of Wedgwood.

We’ll be shining a spotlight on just a small selection the unique and historic attractions, projects and organisations that represent our county’s rich cultural and arts offering.

We’ll be exploring:

  • The importance of our culture and arts organisations, events and offer to the visitor economy in Staffordshire
  • How historic attractions are evolving to deliver ‘experiences’ as well as content and connect with today’s audiences so they are relevant in the 21st century
  • How culture and arts organisations/attractions are educating and inspiring future generations
  • How nationally and internationally renowned brands can help put our county on the map
  • How culture and the community can come together to challenge perceptions and improve our urban spaces

Presentations will be followed by a Q&A with all of the speakers, chaired by Simon Warburton, Executive Director, Lichfield Cathedral and We Are Staffordshire Place Board Member.

Afterwards, guests will be treated to a free, behind the scenes tour of the Wedgwood factory, and a self-guided tour of their V&A Wedgwood Collection.
