Swindon Music Service to become a Charity
Swindon Borough Council’s cabinet has agreed for Swindon Music Service to spin-out of the local authority and to set up as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. This will happen during 2018 and will see music education in Swindon being led by this new charity.
Agreement for further funding
Swindon Music Service has been awarded another two-years of funding from the Department of Education (DfE) through the Arts Council England. This will see over £600k coming to Swindon for music education for the period April 2018 – March 2020
