On Friday 14th, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th January 2 Wrexham City of Culture buses will be touring the county in order to raise awareness and support for the #Wrecsam2025 bid.

The buses will have on board performers and artists who will be hopping off at different locations for a short performance, before jumping back on board and heading to the next location.

Due to current covid restrictions the City of Culture team have had to amend their original plans where over 40 events were to go ahead across the county- this also means that we are unable to share the exact locations and timings of where and when the busses will be passing through.

We’re asking residents across the county to keep your eyes peeled for the 2 red buses that will be on tour.

If you see one of the buses we’d love to see your pictures- you can share them with us using the #tag #Wrecsam2025

Performers taking part will be:

  • Delta Academy Ladies Choir
  • NEW Sinfonia Brass Quintet
  • Coleg Cambria Musical Theatre
  • Luke Gallagher
  • Megan Lee
  • Andy Hickie
  • Delta Academy Youth Dancers
  • Eleni Cymru Dance Group

Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Place and Partnerships at Wrexham County Borough Council added: “The buses are a novel way of engaging with the entire community of Wrexham, without encouraging large gatherings or unnecessary journeys. As much as we would have liked to have greater engagement, we’ll need to wait until it’s safe to do so. “Becoming UK City of Culture in 2025 will be a fantastic tool in our future recovery from covid and I encourage everyone to learn more about the competition and the benefits it will bring to Wrexham. In the meantime I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled over the next few days for the big red culture buses.
