The popular Wrexham History in Pictures events are back!
Alister Williams will be presenting and as usual they are being held in the Wrexham War Memorial Club (next to Tesco) with the next one this Thursday (18th May). It starts at 7pm and thanks to help from Unite the Union the whole series is now free of charge.
Alister is a well-known local historian and author. His publications include The Encyclopaedia of Wrexham and the popular series of books known as Old Wrexham – A Collection of Pictures. The talks are both entertaining and informative; they include many old pictures & photographs and will appeal to anyone with an interest in the town and its history.
You can find out more on Facebook – look for Wrexham Union Learning.

There’s parking at the club with refreshments available at the bar. Come along yourself and bring anyone else who’s interested. See you there!
