A PARADE through Wrexham will take place on Sunday, March 1, to celebrate St David’s Day.
It will start in Tuttle Street at 11am and go along Yorke Street, High Street and Hope Street before assembling on Queen’s Square.
There, marchers will be greeted by Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr David Griffiths, who will join dignitaries and the crowd in singing the Welsh national anthem.
The event has been organised by the council’s economic development department and lead member for corporate governance and regeneration, Cllr Rodney Skelland, said: “With St David’s Day falling on a Sunday, we wanted to mark the day as well as holding the Welsh market on the Saturday.
“Cardiff initiated a similar event a few years ago and, as the largest town in North Wales, it’s great Wrexham can celebrate and share our proud Welsh heritage with residents and visitors.”
Confirmed as participating so far are drum band the Cambria Band and the Clwydian Royal Majorettes.
Youth or school groups who would like to participate can contact the events team at Wrexham council on 01978 292537.
