Entertainment in Wrexham
The 1,200-capacity William Aston Hall is Wrexham’s leading entertainment space. The two-tiered space hosts a diverse range of events including stand-up comedy, musicals, guest speakers, live music and more, with well-known guests including Alan Davies, Jimmy Carr, Feeder and the Levellers.
On the other side of town near Wrexham Central train station is Grove Park Theatre, which has been hosting comedy, musicals, drama and their annual pantomime since 1925.
The oldest football club in Wales and – somewhat incredibly – the third-oldest professional team in the world, Wrexham F.C. have a long and illustrious history having won the Welsh Cup a record 23 times and reaching the latter stages of the FA Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup. The team currently resides in the National League, effectively the fifth tier of the English leagues, and play their home games at the 10,771-capacity Racecourse Ground a corner kick away from our Wrexham Town Centre hotel. Known locally as the Red Dragons thanks, in part, to their distinctive red shirts, the team has a strong local following with ambitions to return to the League Two.
Part of the Eagles Meadow Shopping Centre, ODEON Wrexham is the leading cinema in the region with eight RealD 3D screens and Premier Seats. Thanks to its location on the upper level of the shopping centre, it’s close to a lot of cafes and restaurants including Nando’s and Pizza Express, while the main cinema foyer has a Costa and Ben & Jerry’s.
