One of Wrexham’s largest festive events will return to the city centre next week.

More than 80 stalls and live entertainment will be offer at the Victorian Christmas Market on Thursday 7 December.

The one day event attracts thousands of shoppers and visitors to the city centre – with this year’s event expected to be no different.

As usual stalls selling everything from food, drink, art, beauty, baked goods and festive gifts will be spread between Queens Square through to St Giles Church.

For the younger visitors there’ll be a traditional carousel, ferris wheel and stalls such as a Coconut Shy and the chance to test your strength on the hammer machine

There’ll also be street performers and entertainers with traditional Victorian organ performers, Punch and July and roaming street entertainers such as Queen Victoria, chimney sweeps and everyone’s favourite pickpockets.

Keep an eye out for jugglers, stilt walkers and a performance from the City of Wrexham Brass Band later in the day!

Cllr Nigel Williams, Lead Member for Economy and Regeneration, said: “The Victorian Market is a much anticipated event that brings thousands of visitors from Wrexham and across the region into Wrexham.

“This year the organisers have put together an amazing array of stalls and entertainment that everyone can enjoy and I’d like to thank them all for their commitment to making this an event to remember.”

The Victorian Christmas Market will take place in Wrexham city centre on Thursday 7 December between midday and 8pm.
