The excellent Wrexham History in Pictures events continue this week with the start of the ‘Wrexham Tours’.
It will be held in the Wrexham War Memorial Club (next to Tesco) this coming Thursday (19th October). It starts at 7pm and thanks to help from Unite the Union the whole series is now free of charge to attend. Parking is available and the club bar will be open for refreshments.
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.
Come along yourself and you’re welcome to bring anyone else who’s interested. See you there!
