The event provides a rare opportunity for the public to meet potters to discuss or purchase work and is accompanied by a programme of children's events, artist's demonstrations, a kiln-firing and trade and University stands.

The festival brings together many of the UK's most respected ceramicists. Some of the big names exhibiting in 2007 include Robin Welch, Svend Bayer, Jim Malone Mike Dodd, Anna Lambert, Sarah Walton, Geoff Fuller and Ian Gregory. Earth and Fire also offers an excellent opportunity to sample the delights of Rufford Country Park, once part of the grand country estate close to Sherwood Forest in north Nottinghamshire.
