The Curve's first birthday

The first year of operation at The Curve has been a huge success with thousands of people exploring the centre.

The library and cultural centre has seen a 59 per cent increase in library membership and a 42 per cent increase in children’s borrowing.

There have been births registered and marriages conducted at the register office and Venue @The Curve has hosted a variety of shows and events, including sell-out pantomime performances.

Councillor Sohail Munawar, leader of the council, said: “This flagship building, approved in 2009 as part of the Heart of Slough plan and built by Slough Urban Renewal, opened to acclaim in September 2016. A vibrant cultural hub – its dramatic design is a regional winner of the LABC ‘Best public service building’. The Curve has transformed the town centre and triggered further regeneration and investment.”

A week of activities was organised to celebrate the milestone birthday.

There are constantly activities going on both within the library and The Curve as a whole, so make sure to visit The Curve website or follow The Curve on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.
