Huge crowds are expected in Wrexham town centre this Sunday for the annual St David’s Day parade and celebrations.

In partnership with Wrexham County Borough Council and Tŷ Pawb, Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam have once again organised a day of festivities for the whole family.

As usual the annual parade will also take place and this year will assemble at Tŷ Pawb on Chester Street from 12.45pm before starting at 1.00pm (sharp!) under the leadership of Band Cambria.

The parade will make its way through the town ending back at Tŷ Pawb where celebrations will continue with live entertainment from Ifton Colliery Band, Côr DAW choir and Andy Hickie.



The winners of the St. David’s window decorating competition will be announced and everyone will also have an opportunity to sing the National Anthem and Calon Lân. There is a warm welcome to everyone to join the celebrations.

St David’s Day celebrations will kick off in Tŷ Pawb from 11am onwards, with stalls selling Welsh produce and live music from local singer Megan Lee. There will also be plenty to keep the children entertained, with crafts in the morning and a Memory Lane Cinema in the afternoon showing some classic S4C animation for kids, such as Wil Cwac Cwac and Superted.

The Chief Officer of Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam, Gill Stephen, said: “There is a warm welcome for people of all ages to join in the fun again this year, whether they are Welsh speakers or not.

“This extremely popular event is an opportunity for everyone in Wrexham to celebrate the Welsh identity of the town.”

These celebrations are a part of numerous events that will take place across Wales to celebrate our Patron Saint’s Day, so use #DewiWrecsam on social media for information, to share photos, and to follow the event throughout the day.

Anyone interested in getting involved in the parade should contact Anna Prysor Jones, Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam on 01352 744 040 or email anna@menterfflintwrecsam.cymru
