Did you get a piece of Royal Crown Derby as a Wedding Gift? Do your Parents or Grandparents collect it? Were you bought a piece for a special occasion? Did you buy some for yourself or have it handed down to you? 

The Royal Crown Derby Museum want to know about it! They have teamed up with Romani author and storyteller Richard O’Neill to collect Gypsy and Traveller people’s memories and stories about their favourite piece of Royal Crown Derby china.To make it even easier to take part you can send in a video or voice recording using What's App or Facebook as well as using their website. If you have a story but not sure how to do a video you can drop them an email too and they will give you some help.   

You can find everything you need to know about how to get involved here

Submissions close on 17th March 2021 so you still have time ....AND the first 60 submissions they recieve will be entered into a prize draw and two people will be chosen to win an Old Imari Solid Gold Band Butterfly (pictured above)

Everyone has a story to tell and the project, will enable the museum to share a very significant Royal Crown Derby story. 

The project is funded by Arts Council England
