AN exhibition of photos featuring people who used to work at Worcester's famous Porcelain Factory has helped the team discover more about the history of the site.

Titled, We worked at the Porcelain, the exhibition has been drawing in former workers and their families since it opened last month.

The exhibition was curated by Harry Frost, who was a former curator and designer at the factory, and features only people who are unknown to the museum.

Carrie-Anne Parkes, heritage project officer, said they had already received a great response.

"The photos were taken for press and publicity purposes and they feature people who we don't know, so we want people to come down and identify them.

"We had a launch date in February and about 60 people came along and there will be more of these opportunities for former workers and their families to attend for free.

"We have started to get names of people in the photos and are building up contact details with people who used to work at the museum. And we have found out new details and information on the history of the factory as well."

The next chance to attend one of these events is on Saturday, March 22, then on Friday, May 2 and Saturday, June 21.

The exhibition is also open to members of the public during the museum's opening hours, 10am until 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
