The NCS is a ceramics collectors' and researchers' membership society, established in 1972. A registered UK charity (287630), it has the key aim of 'the advancement of the education of the public in the study of the history and manufacture of ceramics'. The society has a regular programme of lecture meetings, events, visits and residential seminars, along with an active publications policy. Seminars and events are open to non-members, but to attend more that one regular lecture meeting in the programme year we recommned that you join the Society. You will find a friendly and knowledgeable group of like-minded people at each event.
