Keep your eyes peeled! Wrexham’s City of Culture bid is on tour the next three days for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Keep your eyes peeled over the next three days as Wrexham’s City of Culture bid is going on tour across the county borough

Starting today (Friday 14) and continuing on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 January the buses will be touring Wrexham to raise awareness and support for the #Wrecsam2025 bid.

Wrexham is among eight towns and cities across the UK to have been shortlisted to host the City of Culture 2025 event.

The buses will have on board performers and artists who will be hopping off at different locations for a short performance, before jumping back on board and heading to the next location.

Due to current covid restrictions the City of Culture team have had to amend their original plans where over 40 events were to go ahead across the county.

This also means that the exact locations and timings of where and when the busses will be passing through can’t be shared in advance – but keep your eyes out the next three days as they will be travelling across the county borough.

Performers taking part will be:

  • Delta Academy Ladies Choir
  •  NEW Sinfonia Brass Quintet
  • Coleg Cambria Musical Theatre
  •  Luke Gallagher
  • Megan Lee
  • Andy Hickie
  •  Delta Academy Youth Dancers
  • Eleni Cymru Dance Group

Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Place and Partnerships at Wrexham County Borough Council said: “The buses are a novel way of engaging with the entire community of Wrexham, without encouraging large gatherings or unnecessary journeys.

“As much as we would have liked to have greater engagement, we’ll need to wait until it’s safe to do so.

“Becoming UK City of Culture in 2025 will be a fantastic tool in our future recovery from covid and I encourage everyone to learn more about the competition and the benefits it will bring to Wrexham.

“In the meantime I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled over the next few days for the big red culture buses.”

If you see one of the buses Wrexham Council are inviting people to share their pictures on social media using the #tag #Wrecsam2025
