On 30th January, AMS Swindon held the official opening event for their new centre. Situated at 1 Milton Road in the town centre, Swindon Music Courses are now easy to access.
Swindon Mayor Cllr Eric Shaw attended the event to cut the ribbon and officially open the newly refurbished academy. Of the new centre, Cllr Shaw said: “Centres like this are really important because they make the arts accessible to all. Now that the Academy is in the centre of town, it’s not only physically more accessible but will get a lot more attention from passers by and that can only be a good thing.”
Musicians guests make a smashing opening.
As well as official Mayoral Endorsement, local singer/songwriter legend Nick Harper attended the event to play a guest acoustic set. Harper christened the building by smashing a guitar on the entrance in true rock star fashion.
Following the opening ceremony, guest were able to tour the building at their leisure and enjoy live performances from the students in the brand new space.
Come and see for yourself
All in all, it was a fantastic evening for the academy of music and sound and the Swindon music scene. If you’re interested in touring the new centre, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01793 644477.
