The warm summer evenings are finally here – which means one of Wrexham’s most spectacular annual events is just around the corner.

There is just a week left until the return of ‘Underneath the Arches’, the open air concert and visual light show at the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

Set against the backdrop of the World Heritage Site, on Friday 12th July the towering 126ft pillars will be illuminated in bright colours before culminating in a fantastic fireworks display.

There will also see performances from the likes of Crossroads, Class of ’18, Skariad, Ego Friendly and Destination.

Now in its eighth year, the unique event sees thousands of people visit the Bont playing field at the aqueduct to enjoy a picnic in the park style evening.

Back in 2017 ‘Underneath the Arches’ was named the Best Visitor Event (under 7.5k) at the 2017 North Wales Tourism Awards as well as the second best in the whole of Wales (coming second to the Champion’s league final at the Millennium Stadium!)

You can find out more information on the event and how to get tickets on the Underneath the Arches Facebook page.
