Dydd Llun Pawb

In April 2018 Oriel Wrecsam will resurrect Dydd Llun Pawb (Everybody's Monday) - an almost forgotten tradition unique to Wrexham.

In the late 1800s, following the Spring market, everyone was given the Monday off in order to descend on the town, which was wildly animated with street entertainment, food stalls, musical acts and surreal side shows. In 1895 it was quite the colourful occasion!

Dydd Llun Pawb will capture the essence of the original 1800's event but reimagined in a celebratory and playful way through a street parade, fair and the launch of six new souvenirs based on six of Wrexham’s strangest and most wonderful stories that we’ll be gathering at events, workshops and through this site over the coming months.

If you’re interested in getting involved, sharing a story or have any thoughts or comments please get in touch with us here, or at dyddllunpawbwxm@gmail.com or drop into Oriel Wrecsam for a chat.
