The final big event in the town’s festive calendar got off to a flying start today, with large crowds visiting Wrexham’s first ever Christmas Village.
Today marked the first day of the event, which will also take place on Llwyn Isaf / Library Field tomorrow Saturday 15th December before finishing at 4pm on Sunday afternoon.
The event, which is the first of its kind to take place in Wrexham, brings together around 50 chalets selling everything that you need this Christmas – including handmade decorations, unique gifts, pickles and chutneys, confectionary and alcohol.
There’s also a whole of host of food stalls to enjoy (we worked our way around a fair few of them), with warm brownies and waffles, hot dogs, hog roast, falafel, burgers and hot chestnuts all on offer.
For those who want a break from the cold weather or a place to sit down to eat and drink, there is also giant double tepee – complete with real logs burner and festive lighting – with live entertainment for visitors to enjoy.
Today saw performances from a magician, clockwork ballerinas and some fantastic singing of Christmas songs! Of course there is plenty more entertainment taking place over the next two days as well.
There’s some familiar faces on the bandstand, with Santa’s reindeer making a couple of visits to Wrexham over the weekend before heading back home to the North Pole for their seasonal work.
The first day of the event has seen a hugely positive response from visitors we spoke with, who have commented on how good it is to see such an event taking place in the town – with many planning on returning later on in the weekend!
