Huge crowds expected in town for the return of much-loved Playday for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Hundreds of children and families are set to descend on Wrexham town centre tomorrow to enjoy the much-loved Playday.

It will be the first time the event on Wednesday 3 August has taken place since summer 2019.

However with restrictions on large crowds and social distancing no longer in place, Playday is expected to attract large crowds for an afternoon of fun and games.

Organisers are planning on making it a memorable event for everyone, with Llwyn Isaf and Queens Square being transformed into a play area for families and children of all ages to enjoy.

Playday favourites, including the giant sandpit on Llwyn Isaf and the chance to build go-karts, will be on offer – along with a chance to take on the on the obstacle course.

Youngsters can also take part in art, games, basketball, avoid the lava floor and of course there will be plenty of water!

The aim of this event is to highlight children’s right to play, encouraging people to recognise the value of playing to children, their families and their local communities.

In doing this Wrexham’s Playday event is part of the local authority’s continued commitment to try ensure all children across the county borough have enough time, space and permission to play.

Playday will take place on Llwyn Isaf and Queens Square on Wednesday 3 August between midday and 4pm.

Parking is free after 11am in all council-owned car parks – except Ty Pawb. Usual long-stay / short-stay parking restrictions are in place in the car parks.
