Learn about Wrexham’s football heritage in a guided walk through the city.

Wrexham Museum and the future Football Museum Wales team present: The Football Heritage Tour of Wrexham.

This guided walk, on August 30, 10.30am till 12.30pm, will connect the dots between landmarks, football and community.

Cllr Paul Roberts, Lead Member for Partnerships and Community Safety, said: “We delivered our first ever guided Football Heritage Tours of Wrexham in early August and received some terrific feedback. Visitors praised the tours for being well researched, well presented, fun and informative.

“Following the success of these initial tours, we’ve very pleased to announce that we’ll be scheduling more to take place over the next few weeks. Tickets are available through Wrexham Museum’s Eventbrite page  https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/amgueddfa-wrecsam-wrexham-museum-40209720463
