  • You can now buy your tickets for the July – December 2019 talks and trips!  There’s lots coming your way so why not take a look at our events page to see what’s coming up or pick up the new leaflet at Swindon MAG.
  • The future plans for Swindon Museum and Art Gallery took a step forward this Spring when suggestions were presented to cabinet (Swindon Borough Council) on 20th March.  The full press release (which can be found in a post below) sheds light on what SBC is committed to achieve over the coming years.  The Friends of Swindon MAG are pleased to see this drive to ensure that “Swindon’s valuable art collections and artefacts [are] given a secure and permanent future”.  When we learn more we will let you know!
  • We are continuing to fundraise for Swindon Museum & Art Gallery and have committed £500 towards the running of children’s workshops which are a vital part of the museum’s programme of events.
