MORE than 4,000 visitors and over 100 exhibitors were attracted to this year’s Potfest in the Park at Hutton-in-the-Forest, near Penrith, at the weekend.

Exhibitors included a group of potters from Catalonia, Spain, who are expected to stay in the area so they can take part in Potfest in the Pens this weekend at Skirsgill auction mart, Penrith.

The festivals are organised by Chris and Geoff Cox, from Penruddock. Geoff said there were also exhibitors from all over the UK as well as countries including the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Spain.
