Over a thousand people marching through the streets of Wrexham in celebration of St David’s Day

Posted Thursday March 3rd, 2016 in the News Uncategorized category

A fantastic day in Wrexham yesterday as crowds of all ages lined the streets take part in the St David’s Day celebrations which were organised by Menter Iaith Maelor in partnership with Wrexham County Borough Council.

The town was awash with Welsh flags and daffodils as the community came out in force to take part in the parade led by the Cambria Band.

This was followed by performances in Queens Square from Wrexham Community Choir and pupils from Bryn Alyn School with everyone finally joining in to sing the National Anthem.

Gill Stephen, Chief Officer of Menter Iaith Maelor, said:

“It was particularly nice to see so many of Wrexham’s schools represented this year with over 500 of the county’s children taking part in the celebrations. 

The St David’s Day Parade and celebrations have been growing in popularity every year recently until they have become an important event here in the largest town in North Wales. 

We very much look forward to seeing the parade continue to develop and grow in popularity over the next few years.”
