Wrexham’s Christmas market took place this evening with its usual Victorian theme. Last year the market was cancelled due to storms so it was great see a fantastic turn out, despite the freezing temperatures!
With 70 stalls up and trading from 12 noon until 8PM the market was full of people when we braved the cold and headed out to see what was going on.
The stalls were set up on Church Street, St Giles Churchyard and inside St Giles Church itself and ranged from delicious looking cakes and brownies, locally produced beers and ciders, hot beef rolls, locally produced meats, mulled wine and crepes to handmade crafts, Christmas decorations, wreaths, cards, candles, jewellery and clothes.
Throughout the market were ladies dressed in Victorian clothing as well as entertainment from The Splott Brothers a Victorian cabaret, Ruth Moore Williams, Limelight productions, The Salvation Army Choir and Fox’s Christmas putting on a special Christmas puppet show – which we did happen to catch a few minuets of!
There were also stalls inside St Giles church as well as a programme of music and choirs for those who wanted to be slightly warmer!
