A popular Christmas Market held by Coleg Cambria will return to Wrexham. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Following the success of last year’s inaugural events, the markets will be held from December 6-8 at Yale in Wrexham, and December 13-15 at Deeside.  ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Up to 25 vendors will be in attendance, including Rhug Organic Farm Estate, Pizza Cake, Purple Petals, Emily Anne Jewellery, Roni’s Art, Goch and Co, Pretty Pots by Janet, and Dee Designs. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Entertainment will be provided by the students – including performers from Cambria’s Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime – and Holywell Brass Band are among the other musicians to appear over the six days.  ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

As well as independent producers, Santa Claus will pay a visit to both sites and there will be plenty of seasonal delights in store for all the family.  ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Maria Stevens, Cambria’s Director of Commercial Operations, looks forward to welcoming people back for more festive fun this December. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“We were delighted with how well last year’s markets were received by students, businesses and the local community,” she said. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“As well as bringing Christmas cheer to Wrexham and Deeside it’s a chance for local producers to showcase their offerings, which include food and drink, crafts, jewellery, health and beauty collections and lots of gift ideas.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Maria added: “There will also be live music, theatre performances, mulled wine and street food, and our very own Ial Restaurant, florist and salon will have a presence, so there is plenty to see and do. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“We are delighted to hold these Christmas events at the college for a second year and look forward to welcoming you all soon.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
