It may only be mid-November, however the festivities are about to get underway in Wrexham.

Earlier this morning the town’s Christmas tree made the wet and windy journey down from Llandegla Forest to Queens Square ahead of Thursday’s lights switch on.

The tree has again been sponsored by Allington Hughes.

Amanda Davies, Marketing and Promotions Manager said: “The tree looks absolutely amazing and I’d like to pass on everyone’s thanks to Allington Hughes for their continued support to our Christmas arrangements.

“The lights will be turned on tomorrow and the tree will be seen lit up for the first time.”

Alison Stace, managing director of Allington Hughes Law, added: “It always gives us great pleasure to know we are doing something positive and practical to support the town centre.

“Tens of thousands visited the town last year for all the different events and I’m sure this year will be even bigger and more successful than ever.”

Taking place between 4pm and 7:30pm, the event has been organised by the Rotary Club of Wrexham Glyndwr – with support with the council’s events team – for the fourth year running.

Thousands of people are expected to visit the town for the event, which signals the start of the Christmas celebrations in Wrexham.

Throughout the afternoon and early evening there will be live entertainment, fairground rides and festive stalls on Queens Square – before culminating in Love Island contestant Niall Aslam pressing the big red button and turning on the town’s Christmas lights. There is also a huge firework finale to end the celebrations.

Profits from the event will be donated to the Chirk Dementia Group.

There is free parking available in all council car parks (aside from Ty Pawb) after 3pm to coincide with the event – however it would be worth checking the maximum stay at the car parks.

Further information about Christmas events taking place in town over the next few weeks can be found here. Wrexham Council has also launched it’s Christmas Guide of events, which can be viewed in full here.
