Nonsuch Ceramic Circle


Nonsuch Ceramic Circle is dedicated to the study and enjoyment of antique ceramics.  We meet monthly for most of the year in Sutton Lodge, 139 Brighton Rd, Sutton SM2 5SW.  Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month from 7pm (lectures from 7.30 prompt).


A good selection of guest speakers present informative talks at Nonsuch. We encourage members to bring relevant items to lectures for display and discussion. We also have pot nights where members bring in their latest acquisitions, and occasional outings to visit public or private ceramic collections.


Our current annual membership subscription is £25.00.  If you wish to join, please contact our membership secretary on  []
