Arts Centre To Be Added To Wrexham’s People’s Market

Arts Centre To Be Added To Wrexham’s People’s Market

Traders current working out of Wrexham’s People’s Market have moved to the Butchers Market temporarily so as to help make room for a building refurbishment that will see an arts centre incorporated on site.

According to the BBC, a £4.5 million redevelopment is soon to get underway, with performance areas, two galleries, market stalls and a gallery shop set to be included at the market.

Lead member for communities and partnerships Hugh Jones explained that numerous traders took the decision on themselves and made the move to the Butchers Market to accommodate the workmen.

“We supported them in that move and that left a critical mass in the People’s Market that was too small to support the footfall needed to keep them in business.

“It’s a temporary move. All the people [traders] who want to come into the exciting new arts, cultural market project will be located,” he was quoted by the news source as saying.

There are around ten stallholders in the market and traders were only relocated after Christmas so that their businesses would not be affected at this lucrative time. The work is due to be completed by next year, so it’ll be interesting to see if the refurb has the desired effect of increasing footfall in the town centre.
