This afternoon new business and conference venue The Regent celebrated its grand opening, we popped along to take a look.
Located on Regent Street, the suitably named ‘The Regent’ has been revamped in a project headed by local entrepreneur Joanna Kinch.
Over the last 30 years the building has been used as offices, playing host to a variety of businesses and for a period of time was the local MP’s office.
There are five offices in total including the four available offices named after famous Welsh places, namely Harlech, Beaumaris Conwy & Caernarvon Suites, which are all located on the first floor. Downstairs there is a newly fitted kitchen and convertible meeting space.
The Mayor and Mayoress were in attendance, and officially opened The Regent by cutting a pink ribbon.
Speaking about the opening of the Regent Wrexham Mayor, Mr Bithell said: “The Mayoress and I wish Joanna all the best for The Regent.
“The offices are now redone and are a stylish office space. I would like to thank Joanna for creating a space to thrive.”
Work on the property began back in May and Wrexham.com were told it is a far cry from the condition when the property was purchased.
Owner Joanna Kinch described The Regent as a ‘Mixture of old and new facilities.’
“We had to have the whole roof done, but we have reused anything that we have knocked down or changed.” said Joanna.
The Regent will also be play host to ‘Wrexham Jelly’, an in formal co-working event that allows freelancers, home workers and small/micro business owners to pop down with their laptops and work, chat and collaborate with other small business owners.
Offices at the The Regent will be available for hire or for enquiries from the first of September.
