A Packed Autumn in Wrexham and North Wales

As well as the excitement of Freshers week and the new university year, there is a metric ton of things to do in Wrexham and North Wales in the coming months.

Wrexham Tattoo Convention

For the first time ever, Wrexham are hosting their very own Tattoo Convention, right here at William Ason Hall.  A full weekend of entertainment from live music to film presentations and of course top UK and international tattoo artists all in the one place.  If you're not quite ready to get inked then why not treat yourself to a cut-throat shave or experience a 1950s pin-up makover.
