EXCITEMENT is growing amongst organisers ahead of this weekend's Christmas Markets in Wrexham. 

As communities across Wrexham and Flintshire get into the festive spirit with lights switch-ons and various Christmas treats, this weekend it is the turn of Offa Community Council. 

They have partnered with Fair Event Management, the organisers of Wrexham Feast and various market events in the city centre, to create Wrexham's Christmas Markets. 

After 'outgrowing' the usual location of Queens Square, the market and winter festival will take place in Bellevue Park. 

The event will get underway on Friday (December 8) at 3pm until 8pm, with the Offa community council light switch on taking place at 6.30pm. 

The festivities will continue over the weekend, with the market and festival open from 10am - 7pm on Saturday and 10am - 5pm on Sunday. 

There will be a host of activities and things on offer throughout the weekend including a Snow Queen show, a gingerbread workshop and live music, including brass bands and school choirs from around Wrexham

There will also be a range of excellent local and national traders, giving a great selection for Christmas gift Shopping.


And of course, a street food court with tasty treats, from German Sausage to sweet treats and an onsite bar serving all your festive favourites, including mulled wine and mulled cider.

A spokesperson for Fair Event Management said: "As an organisation we are really excited for this move to Bellevue Park as it will allow the event to grow and support the local community in bringing move festive activities to the area.

"This event has been popular not just with the local community but people visiting from far and wide to attend, including last year many American and Canadian visitors too.

"We are supporting many amazing businesses including some fabulous local ones too, from grabbing your coffee from the guys at Bank Street Social, to getting your festive treats and award winning Jams from Bevs Been Baking or unique Gifts from Artful Items and Emily-Anne Jewellery.

"It's worth a visit to support all the amazing independent businesses who will be in attendance."
