Huge crowds expected for Wrexham’s popular St David’s Day parade! for people living in or visiting the Wrexham area

Huge crowds are expected to visit Wrexham city centre this Friday (March 1) to take part in the popular St David’s Day parade.

The event, which attracts hundreds each year, will see members of the public, school pupils and local organisations march through the streets before returning to Queen’s Square to sing the National Anthem and Calon Lân.

As with previous years the parade will assemble outside the Guildhall (Llwyn Isaf) at 12:45pm on Friday 1 March before starting at 1:00pm (sharp!) under the leadership of Band Cambria.

This year will also see the celebrations continuing at Tŷ Pawb at 4pm with live entertainment from Welsh artists Megan Lee and Meinir Gwilym – along with Welsh produce stalls and a family craft session.

Mayor of Wrexham Cllr. Andy Williams said: “With the next two years promising to be an exciting time with the National Eisteddfod on the horizon, how wonderful it is to be able to celebrate Welsh culture annually with this magnificent parade.”

The St David’s Day celebrations have been organised by Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam in association with Wrexham Council.

The celebrations are a part of numerous events that will take place across Wales to celebrate our Patron Saint’s Day, so use #DewiWrecsam on social media for information, to share photos, and to follow the event throughout the day.
