Time: 18:30 – 11:00pm
The towns and villages around Wrexham are looking forward to their own outdoor concert this Friday for the annual ‘Underneath the Arches’ event. It brings together local families and friends to enjoy the evening air and listen to local musical talent before the greatly loved fireworks and laser show.
The name Pontcysyllte literally means ‘the bridge that connects’ and it does exactly what it says on the tin uniting the villages of Froncysyllte and Trevor.
Completed in 1805, the aqueduct is a fascinating piece of Victorian engineering and measures over a thousand feet long and holds 1.5 million gallons of water along 11 miles of canal. It stands an impressive 126 feet high and has been used every day for over 200 years.
You will be treated to live music, fresh local produce cooked to perfection and entertainment for all the family.
• Big Beat Band
• Rhythm Train
• Luke Gallagher
• The Avenues
• Fish and chips
• Locally produced ‘Tractor Wheel Pies’
• Kids ‘pick-n-mix’
• Soft Drink concessions (bring your own beers!!!)
There will be a few little fairground attractions to keep the children entertained as well as wide open space for them to run around and generally enjoy themselves before the fireworks at the end of the evening alongside an impressive laser show.
Please note that whilst they welcome you coming along to show your support and enjoy the evening, remember that there are likely to be lots of small children around so be drink aware. Furthermore, because of Health and Safety rules you cannot have the following onto site:
• Candles (including tea lights)
• Chinese Lanterns
Get along there and tickets are available online for half the cost on the gate so for £20 you and the family can enjoy a beautiful evening of musical entertainment – just take your seats/tables or blankets and sit back and relax.
