Back in 1841, Swindon was rural grazing land with nothing much to shout about until Daniel Gooch and the GWR changed the landscape forever.
The Western Players originated as “The Great Western Railway (Swindon) Mechanics Institute Amateur Theatrical Society” in the early 1900’s although research has traced the group back even further to 1854!
As part of our final night performances, the Western Players will perform a dramatic reading of a short play about the founding of the GWR in Swindon.
