Monthly talks via Zoom
skip to Main Content

The monthly newsletter keeps you updated with what the Friends are up to. Follow the links below to find our library of newsletters.

We trust you’ll see that our activity is wide-ranging and enjoyable – and worthwhile even in the current (as of April 2023) absence of a physical museum and art gallery.

For information on membership of the Friends of Swindon museum and art gallery go here.
