A local video company has offered its support to a science and discovery centre in Wrexham by creating a short film to help boost interest and public awareness of a potential move to the town centre.

Techniquest Glyndŵr, which is based at the university campus, was a prize winner in a competition held recently by local video production company Creative Jigsaw based in Penyffordd.

The prize was a professionally filmed and produced promotional video that was offered at a substantially reduced cost.

A day was spent filming at the science and discovery centre – which this week saw the completed video edit.

The charity will now be making use of the film to help increase public interest in the centre and raise awareness of its potential permanent move into Wrexham town centre into the former TJ Hughes building in Henblas Square/Chester Street

Scot Owen, Techniquest Glyndŵr’s centre manager said: “We have been wanting to produce a promotional video for some time and the competition provided an ideal opportunity to produce a high quality video at an affordable cost.

“Having just seen the final version of the film I have been impressed at the way Creative Jigsaw have been able to highlight the fun and excitement of what we do. It is surprising to see how a day of filming can be transformed into such an attractive short promotional video.

“It will be a fantastic help in telling more people about what we do.”

The film will now be used whenever possible when the charity attends public events and has just been posted on Techniquest Glyndŵr’s Facebook and YouTube channels. It will shortly also be uploaded to the centre’s website at

Nigel Edwards, proprietor of Creative Jigsaw added: “ were very pleased to have Techniquest Glyndŵr as one of two second prize winners in our recent competition.

“It allowed them a 50% discount against the cost to produce a film that will help promote the centre and also boost its case for funding”.
