Hundreds of people from across Wrexham have taken part in workshops for the upcoming Dydd Llun Pawb celebrations.

The day-long celebratory event on Easter Monday will mark the official public opening of the £4.5 million markets and arts centre Tŷ Pawb in the former Peoples Market.

To coincide with Dydd Llun Pawb, a series of community art workshops have taken place – with organisers saying over 500 people have gotten involved and helped create something to feature in the celebratory parade.

28 community groups including youth teams at Brickfield Rangers Football Club, pupils at St Christopher’s School, members of the Gresford Lunch Club, boy scouts and girl guides from across the county have been involved with the workshops; along with members of the public who have taken part in drop-in events.

The workshops have been delivered by a team of local artists who have been helping groups celebrate their own unique contributions to the Wrexham community, by making flags, banners, costumes and much more.

For anyone wanting to be involved in the parade, there is a final drop-in session taking place in Wrexham town centre this weekend.

The final session will take place from 1.00pm – 3.00pm on Saturday 24th March at Undegun Art Space in Wrexham Town Centre. You are not required to bring anything to this session, just turn up and get crafty!

There is now less than a month until the official public opening of Tŷ Pawb and earlier this week invitations for Dydd Llun Pawb on Monday April 2nd started going out to every household in Wrexham

Dydd Llun Pawb is a free event and open to everyone, featuring live music and dance performances, food, drink, and craft stalls, a fairground and fireworks!
