Wrexham city centre has no less than FIVE Christmas craft and artisan markets next week!
They include the much-loved Victorian Market on Wed 7 December, and Coleg Cambria’s Christmas Market at the Wrexham Yale campus from Tuesday to Thursday.
Saturday 10 December sees the Christmas Maker’s Market at Ty Pawb, and Wrexham Street Market in Henblas Street, while Queens Square hosts the Wrexham Winter Festival & Christmas Market on both the Saturday and Sunday.
The various events will feature live music and entertainment, mince pies and mulled wine, and all imaginable craft and artisan products. Information about each of them is at www.bit.ly/xmaswrexham
“I’d like to thank all the organisations that helped bring these markets to Wrexham”, says Councillor Nigel Williams. “They bring a festive feel to the city centre and will hopefully bring in thousands of extra visitors, to enjoy the festivities and no doubt spend time in local shops and hospitality too.” Cllr Williams is Lead Member for Place – Economy and Regeneration.
Stallholders are enthusiastic; Mandy Hughes, the ‘Doolally Lady’ says she finds them very rewarding and lots of fun. “It’s great chatting to members of the public, especially fellow crafters. There’s such a friendly atmosphere, and I really appreciate the people who buy my hand-crafted products, it’s as if bits of me are in people’s homes all over Wrexham!”
Her daughter Heidi, of Heidi Lou Jewellery, adds: “I love seeing our city so busy, it brings people together. The Street Market has a real family feeling, with a great bond among the stallholders. It’s great to have Right Stuff Catering with their delicious Jamaican street food.”
Wrexham’s shops, pubs and cafés, as well as our permanent markets, also have lots of gift ideas and seasonal offerings to tempt visitors to explore further!
