Organisers of a popular festival have had a sneak preview of what is store for this year's event.

The Singing Streets Festival is returning to Wrexham town centre this autumn, and Wrexham Glyndwr hosted the launch which featured primary school choirs showing off their singing voices.

The annual event, organised by Ian Lucas MP in partnership with Wrexham Glyndŵr University, saw 27 choirs perform at six locations across the town last year, and currently has 20 signed up this year.

Now into its fourth year, Singing Streets returns on September 28, and was established with the aim of promoting Wrexham and bringing people together through music.

Mr Lucas, who attended the launch along with Mayor Rob Walsh, said: “It’s really important that we have the children involved, not just from a wonderful music point of view, but they are also incredibly popular.

“They bring their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents out into the streets, which is what this is all about.

“I know from the previous three years, the children are one of the parts that the public most enjoy, so it’s brilliant to have had just a little taste this morning of what we’re going to be having in September.

“More children on the streets of Wrexham, bringing more people into Wrexham town centre, which is really how the festival was born on the back of our local street festivals.

“The aim is to bring more people into the town of Wrexham, which the festival has achieved, and we’ve seen more businesses and features like Ty Pawb develop over these four years as part of the festival. It is a venue that we are now using as well as the outdoor scenes, and it’s working wonderfully for the town.

“This year we are really looking forward to the fourth edition of the Singing Streets Festival, we’ve got 20 choirs already booked in, we’re open for more if any want to come along.

“It’s not just key for Wrexham, but for North Wales, a lot of people come a long way to be part of our event, and help to promote Wrexham, promote singing, and show what a positive place Wrexham is.”
