CHRISTMAS MARKETS have brought some festive cheer to Wrexham's city centre this weekend (December 2 and 3).

Markets are often extremely popular in the build up to Christmas, as people look out for some unique gifts to wrap up for friends and family.

The Wrexham Makers Market was one of those which returned on Saturday (December 2) to offer a diverse range of items including ceramics, textiles, woodwork, homewares, jewellery, glass and printmaking.

Set in the bustling, vibrant market space of Tŷ Pawb, the market was once again the perfect place for guests to buy bespoke gifts this December.


On the same day, the Christmas Food and Drink Fayre was also set up on Queen Street.

There, guests could enjoy some fantastic treats on offer from the various wonderful traders who braved the cold and came out to see them.

Also set up on Queen Street on the day was Alun Hughes Film Music and Nostalgia, offering a range of Christmas DVD's and CD's for bargain prices.

On what was also Small Business Saturday in the UK, so many local independent businesses were out in force in Wrexham and were supported well by a big crowd of attendees.

And there is even more to look forward to in Wrexham ahead of Christmas Day.

The Victorian Christmas Market will take place on Thursday, December 7, before the 'Local Traders Street Market' is set up on Saturday, December 9.

Wrexham Christmas Market will also take place that week between December 8-10.

The Markets organised by FairEvent management and Offa community council will take place in Bellvue Park over three days in December. 

There will be the Bellvue Park light switch on to get things underway on the Friday, while over the weekend there will be a host of stalls, activities, rides and live music to keep everyone entertained.
