Christmas Village

Figures have just been released for visitors to this year’s Victorian Market and they show a whopping 32,823 people visited the Town Centre for this annual and extremely popular event.

The event, held in St Giles Church, Church Street, Regent Street and saw over 100 stalls offering festive fare to visitors from across the region.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Mark Pritchard, said: “This is an amazing figure and is fantastic news for those who work in the town centre. I know that people came from across the region and they were delighted by what was on offer including the street entertainment and the magical atmosphere that the town centre has this year. The new lights have also  made a big difference and I would like to thank everyone involved for making sure this year’s event, and all the other Christmas events, have been so successful.


The news comes after the final Christmas event – the Christmas Village, held on Llwyn Isaf and Queens Square it saw an estimated 27,000 visit Wrexham across three days – specific figures can’t be given because there are no foot counters in the area.

We saw about 7,500 on the Friday; 6,000 on the Saturday (we had to shut early due to the awful weather!) and 13,500 on the Sunday.

It’s the first time the Christmas Village has set up in Wrexham but we suspect it won’t be the last!

If you have visited us for any of our events we’d like to thank you for your support and we hope that you you visit again soon.
