Countdown on until Staffordshire Day

With just over a month to go to Staffordshire Day on 1 May, and more activities being added every day, the excitement is really starting to build.

This is our third Staffordshire Day and the extravaganza is set to take place over a week to give as many people as possible the chance to get involved.  Events already organised include the Staffordshire Plate Raceday at Uttoxeter Racecourse, and a new exhibition dedicated to Newcastle-under-Lyme’s Philip Astley, the Father of the Modern Circus.

As part of this year’s celebrations Enjoy Staffordshire are also coordinating the World’s Biggest Oatcake Morning.  Similar to Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, they are encouraging groups and charities  to get involved and put on their own oatcake morning fundraisers.  Many groups have already come forward but we want as many oatcake mornings going on across the county as possible, so I’d urge you to get in touch with the team

Staffordshire Day is a wonderful opportunity to shout about our great county and we are keen to get everyone involved, so make sure the date, 1 May 2018 is in your diary.  You can find out about events near you or advice on putting on your oatcake morning at
