Members of the public are being invited to have their say in the future of the Mechanics Institution at a consultation at the Central Community Centre in Swindon’s historic railway village.
The Mechanics' Institution Trust has secured grants from the Theatres Trust and the Architectural Heritage Fund to commission a new viability study for the Mechanics' Institute. This will be undertaken by London based consultants Fourth Street who are expected to complete their work by the end of the year.
The public consultation will be held at the Central Community Centre in Emlyn Square on October 14 at 6pm when consultants will explain their work and seek the views of those attending.
The Grade II* building has been derelict since 1986.
