Here are some memories of Wedgwood 2012, please send in yours and allow me to add them to this list.
Hello, I have only been able to view the aftermath of the events I WOULD enjoy participating in if I were there. I live in America and have yet to venture to Britain to experience that beautiful land.
My wishes for a most enjoyable weekend and the best for everyone accompany this email.

I came over from Adelaide Australia to be at the event. Had a great train ride up to Stoke on Trent and arrived at the hotel in time to look out of the window and see folk arriving with prams, a great sight.
Next day this activity was even more exciting with lorries, vans and cars arriving and many prams emerging ready to grace the museum and grounds. For me it was a dream come true to meet so many people I had 'met' on a pram site and to make new friends as w ell. People loved talking about the history of their prams and what they had done to repair or restore them.
The stalls were full of interesting things, courtyard full of people and prams and the wonderful display of Wedgwood Prams inside the glass case was a backdrop ti the activities and displays of memorabilia in the museum shop. Someone had ordered a sunny day and with the exception of a tiny shower, they were rewarded.
The memories of this day will stay with me forever and I hope to come again one day.
I wish you all a wonderful day and event.
Lyn is a good friend of mine and she was the life and soul of the party - all weekend - how many people can remember her specs? No frame and the lenses were in the shape of two prams!! I bet many of you remember her now!
Psst by the way, Lyn loves a man in uniform as well as a pram! ;-)
Arriving at the Wedgwood museum last year, sun shining, I watched not a couple but seemingly hundreds of people unpacking objects so confusing and so special to my emotions and eyes, I truly felt I had arrived at the high seat of a strange and wonderful cult I had been selected to belong to. I called friends and tried to explain the high it was giving me, indeed they thought I'd lost the plot!
Last year at Wedgwood pram day was a real eye-opener, so many beautiful prams and lovely people. I just met and talked to many ladies (and gentlemen) who love the 'Old time prams' and I felt as if I knew them all. I put names to faces of the ladies I had conversed with on Facebook too. There were so many different makes and styles of prams it was amazing. And inside.... a wealth of pram related stuff at affordable prices. There was history to read, advice to be had, so much knowledge you could not fail to be impressed. I am really excited about this year's events.....Can't wait, see you there.
