Wrexham to celebrate St David’s with city centre parade!
The streets of Wrexham will be filled with song and celebrations on March 1 to mark St David’s Day.
As is tradition for the city a huge parade full of members of the public, schools and local organisations will march through the streets before returning to Queen’s Square to sing the National Anthem and Calon Lân.
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.
For the first time this year will also see the celebrations continuing at Tŷ Pawb at 4pm with live entertainment from Welsh artists Megan Lee and Meinir Gwilym, 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.
