Wrexham Victorian Market

15Dec12

After the ridiculous mega crush of Manchester‘s European Markets, which seem to run from late November right up to Christmas, the Victorian Market at Wrexham this year was a pleasant surprise. I haven’t ever been before and I have to say, it was a lively mix of food, drink, entertainment, local crafts and christmassy things. It was much easier to walk around and adds a delightful feel to the old Churchyard at St Giles, which last weekend played host to a St Giles Session featuring Baby Brave and a Christmas Concert by the Welsh National Opera. St Giles was one of George Borrow‘s Wonders of Wales and the churchyard also has the burial place of Elihu Yale, who was the founder of Yale University in America. I can’t understand why the event is for one night only. Inside the church a carols were being played, outside people were partaking in mulled wine and spiced welshcakes. It’s brilliant and is well worth a visit next year. Follow the link at the bottom for some better photographs and a post on wrexham.com
