The former Royal Porcelain factory in the heart of Worcester is being redeveloped to provide a centre celebrating the long history of the production of high quality porcelain in the City. Through a range of attractions including a heritage centre and facilities for artistic and cultural activities and events, the Royal Porcelain Works will revive and illuminate the history and traditions of an industry which made Worcester known throughout the world.

 

The vision includes the reintroduction of aspects of the manufacture of porcelain on the site, maintaining a tradition of more than 250 years. Alongside will be interactive displays and exhibits exploring the history, science and artistic aspects of porcelain production. There will be additional facilities for visual and performing arts, gallery spaces, workshops for arts, crafts and other artisan activities, alongside relevant commercial activity.

 

The centre will become a vibrant attraction in Worcester, providing exciting artistic, educational and entertainment opportunities, and places to shop, eat and drink and socialise.

 

Development of The Works is being supported by the Bransford Trust - a local charity, which bought the site in 2012 - who is seeking other funding partners.
