The Decision - Collection can be dispersed and sold....

The Campaign to Save the Wedgwood Museum received the shocking news that the UNESCO recognised archive of international importance is not held in trust and can be dispersed and sold to meet wholly disproportionate £135m Pension Fund liabilities.

Read the Press release from the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) lawyers here. Stoke-upon-Trent MP Hon. Dr Tristram Hunt MP is meeting with Government Ministers on December 20th to discuss the plight of the Museum.

The Battle continues - continued political lobbying is essential: write to your MP to drive home how important this unique collection is to you.

Campaign leader Alison Wedgwood: "We will begin a fund raising campaign in the new year, asking the government for urgent support, and seeking support from the Art Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund and as many generous philanthropists as we can cajole. This collection is not leaving Staffordshire without a fight!"

Write to you MP, Join our Supporters roll to declare your support and to be kept up to date with the Campaign: help to Save Wedgwood for the Nation.

Thank you for your support.



  1. Do continue the fight!

  2. The Law is an Ass this time, I'm afraid. A benefactor must be found to buy the whole collection and keep it unchanged where it is.

  3. no this must not happen its part of our history and still in production x

  4. What a disgrace. If the artifacts are sold there will only be a select few who will ever get the pleasure of viewing them. PLEASE DON'T DO IT. Lorraine NZ

  5. Such a shame! Keep up the fight.
