LEGENDARY COLOUR ROOM BROUGHT TO LIFE IN NEWCASTLE


A dramatization of a North Staffordshire legend’s life is being given a unique airing this weekend.

The Colour Room portrays the life of Clayton resident Clarice Cliff, who rose from the shop floor to become one of the most influential ceramics designers of the 20th century.

Made by Sky Original and starring Phoebe Dynevor, Newcastle’s Brampton Museum has been given exclusive permission to screen the film, which comprises part of Newcastle-under-Lyme’s celebrations of its 850th anniversary.

As well as being the only place in the country currently showing the film, the museum will be displaying a collection of props used in its production.

Simon Tagg, Leader of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, said: “Clarice Cliff was a giant of the 20th Century, breaking boundaries in business, capturing people’s imaginations and changing how they looked at things.

“I’m grateful that Sky has allowed these exclusive screenings, which I take as a recognition of the work of the Brampton museum.

“It’s proved so popular that we have added additional screenings on the day but tickets are running out fast.”

Filmed across the area, the drama’s locations include Gladstone Pottery Museum, Middleport Pottery and the Black Country Living Museum.

The screening is part of the town’s 850 anniversary celebrations and will take place in the museum this weekend [21/22]. Tickets are £5 each to raise funds for the museum and further details are available here.

The town’s 850th anniversary programme has been running throughout 2023, with one of its themes being the celebration of famous and inspirational Staffordshire folk, ranging from author and peace campaigner Vera Brittain to Philip Astley, founder of the modern circus.
