Traditionally at this time of year, students will be knuckling down and preparing for exams or coursework deadlines.  But don’t forget, that as well as all that revision, you’ll need to allow yourself some time to let your hair down too.

So let’s take a look at some of the bigger events that are happening in and around Wrexham over the next couple of months so you can get out and about, and enjoy the start of the summer.
