Funders: Wrecsam City of Culture, 3 Counties Connected Community Rail Partnership and Gwersyllt Community Council

Wrexham’s inaugural St David’s Day Lantern Parade lit up the city centre. The parade celebrated Wrexham’s heritage and culture.

In the lead up to the parade lantern workshops using recyclable materials were held in local primary schools and local community venues. 

The parade was supported by Wrexham’s Choir for Good singing traditional Welsh songs and Band Cambria.

Pete Howell Wrexham County Borough Councillor - Gwersyllt South Ward commented.

“The amount of work and effort that had gone into making the lanterns was obvious to see, and the event was a great success with something for all ages”.
