The 2007 Exhibition
The images below show the final celebration where the volunteers who helped stage the Exhibition held a Greek Plate Throwing Party at The Prestoungrange Gothenburg car park, the site of the old Belfield Potteries, lobbing cracked plates provided by Sam Burns Yard in town through Boles onto the beach below - as had been common practice for Belfields!
