Theatre is happening here in Swindon! 

Billie returns again to Swindon as exciting 'new' arts scene taps in to wealth of talent
 
Swindon-born Billie Piper gave up her time again last weekend to share her huge experience with aspiring young actors at the new Shoebox Theatre.
 
The recent Olivier award-winner officially opened the theatre in February as its Patron and returned for an informal question-and-answer session over tea covering all sorts of subjects including the real challenges of working in the theatre and film industry.

Formerly the home of Artsite, the Shoebox Theatre is a brand-new space for the many talented performers, writers, musicians and directors of Swindon to develop, train and showcase their work - bringing something a little different and exciting to audiences of Swindon.
 
Growing scene
 
In what has been described as a 'cultural evolution' here in the town in recent months, people have also been flocking to the new Bohemian Balcony in Rodbourne.
 
Also opened at the beginning of 2017, it also provides an empowering multi-arts venue for Swindon's creative community in what was the former Palladium cinema, which closed in 1962.
 
See the launch video below.
 
 
Spring Arts Festival?
 
And in a fresh move announced this week, Matt Holland, the founder & director of the highly successful Swindon Festival of Literature is now considering organising a Spring Arts Festival to celebrate the range of cultural activities now on offer.
