The Platform as a Venue for Open Studios an Update.

Excellent news, after meeting Paul Ashman of the Swindon Music Service this morning, it has been confirmed that we're still welcome to exhibit in the Platform despite a change of use of the building.
Annoyingly the details of the Music Service were left behind, but there are some photos of the inside and some text I copied from SBC's website.

 When people say, well where is the Platform?
It's that rather imposing, lovely building on Faringdon Road. It was the old Railway Museum.

 Here's a photo of inside with the railway carriage in the background.

Here's the stage with it's excellent music facilities.

 And here's a view of the inside of the railway carriage.

And here's another dizzy one of the outside.

Below is information copied from the borough's website:
