Techniquest Glyndwr 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 based in Cardiff has been partnered with the Wrexham-based science centre, but in 2020 that will decrease as the relocation to Henblas Square is complete. The rebranding is set to coincide with the move to the town centre and provide a fresh face in the community of Wrexham.
The successful funding and purchase of the town centre building has already been announced this summer and this news completes a trio of major announcements by Techniquest Glyndwr.
Centre Manager Scot Owen said “This is yet more positive news for us and offers an opportunity to gain our own bespoke identity. It’s the most exciting time in our 16-year history and to have the chance to cement our own ideas with regards to name, branding and all-round feel is a challenge we are thrilled to undertake.
We now call on the local community to help us decide on these changes as we look to consult with all backgrounds to create a Science Discovery Centre for all. Feedback is now being taken via a public survey whilst focus groups have been set up to engage with the public and take their thoughts on all aspects of the new centre. Please contact Ollie Williams below for more details on when and where the next focus group will take place.
