Stoke on Trent, City of Culture


Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme are hubs of creative activity and we aim to bring news, pictures, blogs and more about them through our website and social media pages.

You can get involved by sending us your pictures or by simply using the hashtag #SOTCulture.
