Change of Name
Techniquest Glyndŵr have revealed that alongside the purchase of and relocation to the former unoccupied TJ Hughes building in the centre of Wrexham, they will also be rebranding the Science Discovery Centre, including a change of name.
Techniquest Glyndwr has come under the ‘Techniquest’ banner since Queen Elizabeth II opened the centre in 2003 initially as ‘Techniquest@NEWI’ before changing to ‘Glyndwr’ in 2009.
The original Techniquest which has its base in Cardiff is a partner of with the Wrexham-based science centre. The relationship will decrease in 2020 as the relocation to Henblas Square reaches completion. The rebranding will coincide with the move to the town centre. It will provide a fresh face in the community of Wrexham.
There has already been an announcement in summer about the successful funding and purchase of the town centre building. This news completes a trio of major announcements by Techniquest Glyndwr.
Centre Manager Scot Owen said “This is yet more positive news for us. The change offers an opportunity to gain our own bespoke identity. This time is the most exciting in our 16-year history. It is thrilling to have the chance to cement our own ideas with regards to name, branding and all-around feel.
“We now call on the community to help us decide on these changes as we look to create a Science Discovery Centre for all. Techniquest Glyndŵr is now taking feedback via public survey while focus groups will engage with the public. These groups will take opinions on all aspects of the new centre. Please contact Ollie Williams for more details on when and where the next focus group will take place.
