It's one of the nation's favourite craft TV shows, and now you could have the chance to get even closer to the action on the Great Pottery Throwdown.

The show, which returned to our screens on Channel 4 on 8 January, sees 12 budding home potters battle it out to be crowned the best pottery amateur in the country.

And you may soon have the chance to get married on the set of the show, which stars presenter Siobhan McSweeney and much-loved judges Keith Brymer Jones and Rich Miller.

This is because an application has been put in for Gladstone Pottery Museum in Stoke-on-Trent – which is where all six series of the show has been filmed – to be used as a wedding venue.

If the council permission is granted, couples will soon be able to start planning their day at the nineteenth century potbank.

The application states that up to eight wedding ceremonies will be able to take place at the venue each year, plus wedding receptions offering catering and a licensed bar for alcoholic drinks, according to the Stoke-On-Trent Live report.

Of course, the museum is no stranger to being centre stage, after filming for each series of the Great Pottery Throwdown began in 2015.

The site was a pottery from 1787 to 1970, creating beautiful coal-dired bone china and everyday ceramics to be sent across the world.

The pottery opened as a museum in 1974, after it was saved from demolition. It is now one of the few buildings with intact bottle neck kilns left in country.

Why is the Great Pottery Throwdown filmed at the Gladstone Pottery Museum?

Stoke-on-Trent is considered to be the home of pottery – in fact, the area is also known as The Potteries.

This was in part due to the abundance of coal and clay in the area. It led to the development of Master Potters, including Wedgwood and Spode.

Some of the famous brands still creating pottery in and around Stoke today include: Emma Bridgewater, Portmeirion, Royal Doulton, Wedgwood and Royal Stafford.
