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.

On this website you will also find biographies of our Cultural Champions, each of the six towns of Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme have their own champion and there’s also a heritage champion in the city.
