29/04/2020'Name that Pattern' Competition
Burleigh pottery has been made on the Middleport Pottery site since 1889. Fashions and tastes have changed hugely over this time, which has been reflected in Burleigh patterns. During the current lockdown, Re-Form Heritage is running a competition inviting you to Name that Pattern. Can you name these five Burleigh patterns all produced on the Middleport Pottery site over the last 100 years?

Those that correctly identify all five patterns will be entered into a prize draw to win a piece of Burleigh pottery. Three winning entries will be drawn at random, with each receiving one piece of Burleighware. All other entries will receive free admission for two people to the Middleport Pottery Heritage Trail.
Competition open until Friday 31st July 2020.
This competition is being run by Re-Form Heritage. Competition entry is not open to current Burleigh staff or Re-Form Heritage staff. Re-Form Heritage will select the three pieces of Burleigh pottery for the main prize and will send these via post after Middleport Pottery re-opens to the public.
