Sheer Isolation – with Julian Jones (Swindon Hub) (14/11/21)

A new community centre has recently opened in the centre of Swindon. Our guest this week is Julian Jones who is part of the Swindon Hub project. The site, which took over the derelict River Island store last month includes a cafe, exhibition space, workshop areas and a venue hall. Organisers are already planning events including theatre shows, guest speakers and community advice for reducing our bills and carbon footprints. With Swindon’s town centre not looking its best in recent years due to so many retail outlets closing, it’s hoped the Swindon Hub will help buck this trend.

This week’s musical choices are from the melodic Bristol/Norway group Ålesund, and we play a bit of classic indie from Swindon’s own Viduals.
