When was The Great Pottery Throw Down 2021 filmed?

This year’s series of The Great Pottery Throw Down was filmed at Gladstone Pottery Museum in Longton, rather than its usual spot of Middleport Pottery in Stoke-On-Trent.

The contestants, judges and crew formed a bubble to allow them to film the series during the coronavirus pandemic.
