What they’re saying about the new Swindon Museum and Art Gallery

Initiatives such as this are vitally important to the regeneration of Swindon. As a major local employer we know it is important that the town continues to be an attractive place for people to live and work, not just for our current 7,000 strong, Swindon-based workforce but for our future employees too.

Rob Angus, strategy and propositions director at Nationwide Building Society, Swindon’s largest employer

This sort of initiative really helps to support the diversity of attractions in Swindon and is instrumental in creating a great place to live and to work.

Andy Tait, director of marketing and operations Europe, Middle East and Africa at Intel

Swindon is in desperate need of a flagship cultural development and a vibrant town centre to continue the economic growth, or tech businesses like ours will struggle to attract or retain the best talent in the marketplace.

James Phipps, CEO Excalibur Group, Swindon

We know from our many discussions with businesses that staff recruitment and retention is a key factor in their business growth. A world class museum and art gallery will provide the focus for the great provision of cultural and arts that we have in the town, where we are working closely with key organisations and the Council to help promote this.

Ian Larrard, Director of Business West in Swindon & Wiltshire

Those of us who have set up businesses and live in Swindon know from experience that you can enjoy a really high quality of life here, but that’s not always immediately apparent to those outside the area.

The fact that the Trust and Swindon Borough Council are developing a vision for a landmark building in the new museum and art gallery is very encouraging, and the project will undoubtedly make a substantial contribution to the future economic and cultural wealth of Swindon.
