This week, there will be FIVE different Christmas craft and artisan markets in Wrexham city centre!
This mega market week had some newcomers and some much-loved favourites:
- Victorian Market, December 7
- Coleg Cambria, Christmas Market, December 6-8
- Christmas Makers’ Market, Ty Pawb, December 10
- Wrexham Street Market, Henblas Street, December 10
- Wrexham Winter Festival & Christmas Market, Queen’s Square, December 10-11
These events will feature live music and entertainment, mince pies and mulled wine, and all imaginable craft and artisan products.
Councillor Nigel Williams, lead member for place – economy and regeneration, said: “I’d like to thank all the organisations that helped bring these markets to Wrexham. 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.”
Mandy Hughes, the ‘Doolallylady’, is looking forward to setting up her stall: “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.”
If you visit one (or all) of the markets next week, make sure you call into Wrexham’s shops, pubs and cafés, as well as our permanent markets, to find even more gift ideas and seasonal offerings!
