New group to support Swindon small businesses - come along to make new connections and progress your business.

FSB and Swindon Council are partnering to offer a new peer network for Swindon small business owners. At peer networks, small groups of business owners work together to overcome specific challenges by sharing their own experiences. If you are locally based, or operate in or around Swindon, and would like to join this group, please do register here. 

The peer network will initially consist of four Monday evening sessions from 6-7:30pm at The Workshed. Attendees are expected to come to all sessions where possible. The dates are: 
  • Monday 22 April
  • Monday 20 May
  • Monday 17 June
  • Monday 22 July

This is a great way to gain more connections with local business owners and to share ideas and experiences to help progress your own and other's business challenges.

Coffee and tea will be served. 

How to get there

Workshed's main entrance is 7 Carriage Works on London Street (opposite house number 6A London Street). Coming from the train station, turn right passing car park entrances on your right and after approx 300 metres, Workshed is on the right-hand side of London Street, just before you get to the disused Mechanics Institute on the left (and before the pedestrian tunnel to the McArthur Glen Swindon Designer Outlet). It is about a 10 minute walk from the train station. 

Coming through the tunnel from McArthur Glen Swindon Designer Outlet/National Trust/English Heritage etc, turn left and the entrance is about 20 metres on the left (the fourth door). 


The venue is accessible to disabled visitors, has a lift for wheelchair users, and has disabled bathroom facilities.
