Wrexham. Not only is it hosting one of the world’s great festivals this summer but it is also celebrating its very own Year of Culture, with over 300 fabulous events taking place in its midst.
Described as “a cross between Glastonbury and the Edinburgh Festival”, it is hoped that Wrexham Year of Culture (WYOC) will attract thousands of visitors to the area and give local people the opportunity to enjoy a thrilling programme of events. From exhibitions and operatic performances to a Royal Wedding Street Party, there will be something for everyone. Check out the official WYOC website or call the Tourist Information Centre on 01978 292015 for the latest information.
The Wrexham and District National Eisteddfod will take place from 30th July to 6th August at Lower Berse Farm, off Ruthin Road, Wrexham, and is expected to attract up to 160,000 visitors. As ever, there will be an eclectic mix of music, dance, visual arts, performances and activities to suit all tastes, and the famous Pink Pavilion will be the focal point for cultural ceremonies and competitions. What’s more, LDS Tourism Services has been chosen to distribute and display the official Eisteddfod brochure, so you will be able to pick up a copy from one of our many Visitor Info Points (VIPs) from March onwards.
We’re also delighted to be working with Wrexham County Borough Council once again. As usual, we will deliver a selection of tourism publicationson to specific drops their behalf (please contact WCBC to be included) and we will, of course, distribute The Real Wrexham 2011 to hundreds of outlets throughout the region.
