It’s being hailed as one of the best Focus Wales festivals ever!
Thousands of music fans enjoyed three days of festivities at packed out venues across Wrexham.
Tŷ Pawb was right at the heart of this year’s festival, with three stages of live music, conferences, exhibitions and activities.
More than 9,000 people visited Tŷ Pawb over the three days to enjoy a buzzing festival atmosphere and make the most of the food, drink, shops and galleries.
Thanks to Tim Rooney for the above photos!
Praise for Tŷ Pawb
Visitors appear to have been very impressed with Wrexham’s new markets, arts and community hub!
This included the well known BBC Radio DJ’s, Huw Stephens and Bethan Elfyn.
They took part in a talk at the festival on Friday and made the most of Tŷ Pawb’s amazing food court offer…

Huw called it “lle arbennig” – “a special place”!

The Welsh celebrities were not the only ones to comment on the fabulous food and drink…
Loved visiting @typawb in Wrexham for an incredible waffle, a Chewbacca sighting, and a brilliant art shop with music related goods. A lot of the bands for @FocusWales were playing here. Such a great community space – I will miss it! pic.twitter.com/LI85Ff2qjT

“I wish we lived nearer to it..”
As well as the amazing food there was also plenty of general praise for Tŷ Pawb as a community venue…
Excellent sets by The Beths @LizstokedStokes @PeanessBand and The School @FocusWales Bit of a hot room, but @TyPawb arts centre is a gem and I wish we lived nearer to it and not 2 hours away. pic.twitter.com/X8jZnyqRMW

Little detour to @TyPawb. What an amazing space bringing together arts, culture, shopping and food under one roof! Made particularly welcome by these young people. What great ambassadors for Wrexham. 🏴 pic.twitter.com/SdaGmZOEdo
