Join us for national ‘Civic Day’ on Saturday 17th June from 11am – 4pm.
This year Civic Day, which is led by the national Civic Voice charity, is celebrating 50 years of Conservation Areas, providing a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and enjoy Swindon’s unique Railway Village Conservation Area.
Swindon Civic Voice and Mechanics’ Institution Trust, Swindon have teamed up to offer ‘Open Doors’ at four of Swindon’s treasured heritage assets: Milton Road Baths, the Railway Village Museum, Central Community Centre and The Baker’s Arms.
Guided tours of the Railway Village will also be given at 11am and 3pm. At 4pm there will be tea and cake and a special unveiling at Central Community Centre!
This event has been funded by, and with thanks to, The Midcounties Co-operative.

‘Civic Day is a national celebration of civic pride. It is taking place on June 17 2017.
Although the co-ordinating work is done by Civic Voice, what really makes this event happen is the fantastic effort of thousands of volunteers. These people give guided tours, put on exhibitions, arrange street parties, organise competitions and help visitors understand the area they live in just a little bit more. The first ever Civic Day was held on June 25th, 2011 and involved over 200 community groups across England who put on over 350 events to celebrate where they live. Since then over 1000 community events have been held across England making Civic Day a truly national event.’
