Temporary closure for Techniquest — CV19 update

March 18, 2020

Updated: 3rd June 2020

Following the latest Welsh Government guidance, our centre remains closed for the protection and safety of our colleagues and customers.

Whilst our centre is temporarily closed, we still have a small team working hard to plan our next-steps and prepare the centre for re-opening when it is safe to do so.

Our CEO Lesley Kirkpatrick comments;

“Based on Government guidance, our centre has been closed since March to safeguard both our colleagues and customers.

“Whilst these circumstances are quite unusual and we are all learning to adapt, our team are working hard to continue planning the launch of our Science Capital project. We are developing ideas to ensure our new space will be a safe environment for all when we have the opportunity to open our doors once again. We are confident in the knowledge our centre will be fully-compliant with socially distanced measures when we are permitted to re-open.


We understand you may have some further questions about our centre and what the closure means for us as an organisation. To answer your questions, we regularly update our FAQ section -which you can read here.
