  • The future plans for Swindon Museum and Art Gallery recently took a step forward 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 delighted to have for the first time ever completely sold out of tickets for a Friends talk over a month in advance!  Well done if you were lucky enough to get your tickets for Ken White’s talk in time.
  • 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.
