Happy Staffordshire Day everyone!

Today is 1 May, and it’s Staffordshire Day.  It’s our day and the day we join together to celebrate our wonderful county.

It’s our fourth Staffordshire Day and each year it’s getting bigger and bigger. This year’s theme is ‘Made in Staffordshire’, which as the name suggests is a celebration of all the great things to come out of Staffordshire, from its brewing and ceramic heritage, as well as food and drink, to the music and some of the most famous people from the county.

As in previous years, there’s plenty of events and activities to get involved with, and not just today, but throughout the week and weekend as well.

There’s the Staffordshire Day Plate Raceday at Uttoxeter Racecourse on Saturday 4 May; the World’s Biggest Oatcake Morning at Canalside Farm; the Staffordshire Day Vintage Fair at the National Memorial Arboretum.  There’s also the Made in Staffordshire art exhibition at the Guildhall Gallery in Stafford and much more.

Our libraries are also joining in the celebrations so it’s worth checking out what’s happening in your local library too.

Tying in with this years’ theme is the Made in Staffordshire Playlist. The playlist can be found on Spotify and showcases some of the best music to come from the county, from big named musical legends to rising stars. You can even add your own tracks to the playlist and recommend songs by tweeting @enjoystaffs.

And, returning once again are the Staffordshire Day mug shots. It was a huge success last year when hundreds of people got involved and perfectly fits the Made in Staffordshire theme. All people need to do again is take a quick selfie holding a Staffordshire mug and share it on social media with #StaffordshireDay and we’ll do the rest.

Let’s make it a great day.
