Royal Porcelain Works are delighted to host a number of interesting and topical talks, twice a month in The Hall. On Tuesday 3rd September, we hear from Anthony Collis, who focuses on Worcestershire Inn and Pub Names.

Anthony is a popular presenter of Worcestershire-themed talks inspired by fascinating pictures of past and present – all with an interesting story to tell.

Anthony has been photographing inn signs for more than 30 years, but is dejected about a rapidly disappearing art form that one was likened to an outdoor art gallery.

Besides displaying an excellent variety of inn signs, all located in Worcestershire, Anthony will explain the origin of various local pub names. Many of his images provide a strong visual link to the heritage of the locality and celebrate the concept of local distinctiveness.
