High Street Culture
Find out what’s coming up in our four-year programme of cultural activity across England's High Streets Heritage Action Zones, continuing until 2024.
There is an opportunity to connect the high street to the Spode factory site, which sits adjacent to the high street.
The lack of connectivity means that the high street is missing out on benefiting from Spode's visitors and the creative community based at the Spode site.
There's another Heritage Action Zone in Stoke-on-Trent: Stoke-on-Trent Ceramic Heritage Action Zone
The former Spode site presents a significant opportunity to transform the wider area and has begun to act as a catalyst for future economic growth and cultural development. The town feels on the cusp of regeneration.
There is the potential for the Spode site to provide some anchorage to the high street to offer alternative uses and to become a stronger destination driver.
