News gareth-thomas-and-you-featured

As the nights continue drawing in and temperatures begin to plummet, Wrexham will see a welcome dose of warmth and merriment to the winter evenings when this year’s Christmas lights are switched on – by Welsh rugby legend and Celebrity Big Brother Star Gareth Thomas, alongside – you!

Gareth was at one point the most capped rugby union player in Wales’ history and was the first Welshman to hit one hundred international caps. Alongside his other rugby feats he is the second highest try scorer for Wales!

Locally Gareth has appeared for the Wales national rugby league team at the Racecourse against Italy, as well as playing for the Crusaders Rugby League team when they were in the Super League.

This year he will also star as THE GENIE in the Rhos Stiwt theatre’s production of ALADDIN.

One LUCKY person could win the opportunity to help switch on the Wrexham Christmas lights in Queen’s Square on Thursday, November 22 by entering a very simple competition (details below!).

The lights switch on marks the start of late night shopping in the town centre, and the start of festivities around the town. The event is FREE to attend and promises fun for all the family.

The fun will start at 5:15pm, where crowds will gather for the build up to the big lights switch on at just after 6:30pm! Simultaneously looking skywards, as the town centre lights up, there will also be a fantastic firework display in the skies above Wrexham.

This year sees Calon FM compering the evening, with a host of guest performances including Wrexham’s own Heal The Last Stand and a special appearance by the Mayor Of Wrexham, Tudur and Anni from S4C’s ‘STWNSH’, The Delta Academy – plus The Stiwt’s Panto Cast!

A pop-up festive market will surround Queen’s Square with unique gifts and tasty food for sale. Wrexham Lager will also be in attendance supplying their world famous drink!

You can learn more about the event by reading Wrexham.com/Lights , or checking out the Facebook Event Page
