Huge crowds attend bigger and better Victorian Christmas Market!

Thousands of visitors descended on town centre today – proving that despite the negative social media comments, good things do actually happen in Wrexham.

The bigger and better than ever Victorian Christmas Market drew large crowds throughout the day. However it the evening when the grounds of St Giles Church and the town centre streets being alive with activity, with many taking advantage of the free after 4pm parking (in fact we even heard one person say there was no where left to park for free!)

Due demand there was an expansion of the market from the grounds of St Giles Church and through to the newly paved Hope Street and Queens Street and through to Queens Square, and also now included Henblas Street too.

The new street paving saw it’s first festive use, with many commenting on the overall improved feel of the markets.

More stalls were offering a range of goods and services compared to last year, with improved spacing to avoid pinch points and overly crowded areas.

Further feedback of packed past events had been taken on board with an improved area around St Giles, again building on public feedback from earlier years.

The parish church also played host to a variety of craft stalls – with a Salvation Army choir drawing spectators later in the evening.

Street entertainment was also provided by Punch and Judy, magic and also this very tall man!

The free event has been put on by the Council’s small events team, and had also been supported by the Environment Department offering free parking after 4pm in council carparks.
