Wrexham Street Festival Saturday 24th September (10am-4.30pm)
Live music and more for September Street Festival
Saturday’s Wrexham Street Festival promises a bumper day of fun with song, dance, tasty treats, arts and crafts, sport, play and a little history too throughout the town centre from 10 am – 4.30 pm.
The Street Festival includes Wrexham’s first ever choir festival, Singing Streets, which will see 25 choirs and hundreds of people bring the streets alive with singing.
Choirs will be singing on Hope Street; Eagles’ Meadow; Chester Street; Queen’s Square; and at Wrexham Museum on Regent Street with different choirs at each location through the day. It’s a fantastic opportunity to enjoy wonderful live music. Between 3 and 4 pm all the choirs will join together for a mass sing-along on Queen’s Square, which you can join – workshops and tuition are provided!
Ian Lucas, MP for Wrexham, who has organised Singing Streets with Wrexham Community Choir commented: “The Street Festivals including Singing Streets are all about supporting our town centre. We would love to see as many local people as possible come along on Saturday to enjoy the free musical entertainment and try some of the great products we have in town.”
Alongside Singing Streets, here’s a flavour of some of the other things on offer to enjoy on Saturday:
The Chester Street Arts Zone includes the new Wrexham Independent Gallery with an outdoor exhibition offering a flavor of their permanent gallery in the People’s Market and some fun arty activities for all ages. Emz Cakes is hosting free bunting flag making – all decorated flags will be sewn up after the festival to create community bunting which will be put up across town for future street festivals. Piccolos Crafts Stall has a wide range of handmade local crafts and Sharon Jones from Mini Art Buds at Wrexham Warehouse Project will be offering fun art activities for children.
For those driving into town – Waterworld and Crown Buildings have all day parking on Saturday for £2 and St Mark’s multi-storey car park off Regent Street is £2 for up to 4 hours and £3 all day.
