Exhibition – ‘Glamorous Great Western – travel during the inter-war years’ @ STEAM (to 31 Dec)

December 1, 2009toDecember 31, 2009


Glamorous Great Western is an exciting new exhibition exploring how the Great Western Railway overcame the financial pressures of the Inter-War years and provided a more pleasurable and glamorous way to travel.

The GWR promoted itself with style and elegance, and publicity was an important tool in this.  The exhibition will be displaying some unique GWR items from the 1920s and 30s, including some very stylish art deco inspired publications, as well as pieces of sumptuous silverware.

Under 16s can also enter the GWR Poster Competition and have the chance to have their artwork displayed at STEAM and in Swindon News.

This exhibition runs from 1st May until 31st December 2009
