A website with full details of Wrexham’s second annual choir festival launches today – with the festival itself taking place at the end of the month.
Wrexham Singing Streets returns on September 30 this year, after a successful first event in 2016. The festival has been organised by a team of volunteers, Glyndwr University – and me! Staff and students at Glyndwr have been involved in setting up the Singing Streets website promoting the event, building social media pages and creating short films to promote the festival.
The festival programme will run throughout the day on Saturday, September 30 with choirs from across Wrexham, North Wales and North West England coming to Wrexham to take part. A range of award-winning choirs and singers of all ages will be involved – and the public can join in too, with a mass singalong in Wrexham’s Queen’s Square.
The festival has been sponsored by Eagles’ Meadow, Wockhardt, Crime Link and Costa Coffee and choirs will be singing at locations across Wrexham’s Town Centre.
This year’s festival looks set to be better than ever and the website really helps to give a feel for what people can expect, who they can see and what is going on.
It’s well worth taking a look – and of course, coming down to join in with the festival on the day itself.
The website, with full line up and event updates can be found at http://singingstreets.org
Wrexham Singing Streets is sponsored by Eagles Meadow, Wockhardt, Crime Link and Costa Coffee, with sound systems supplied by John Jones Quality Acoustics.
