You can tell us more about Wrexham.

Arts, crafts and such
  • I believe wrexham to be the cultural capital of the world. Also the wrexham residents are the most intelligent and diverse people I have ever met.
  • There a small one in the wrexham libary iv heard not like I go there
  • Void of all forms of culture, one must look around Wrexham, not in it to find new hope of creation, other than that of two chavs who are minus two brains and one condom.
  • bumbles is a really quaint gifty shop and has a fantastic cafe upstairs. great arty pictures to look at.
  • funkyc's full of great cool hippie stuff and the girl who works there is cool
  • muesem is show casing there gold cloak thety found in mold
  • Art and culture are despised in Wrexham. I like places in Chester and Liverpool for art, and sometimes Manchester or Birmingham.
  • Wrexham is void of art and culture entirely. If you were found to be in posession of any art, the chances are you would be murdered by BNP members from a council estate, who hate art because they once saw a painting by a black man.
  • People are disliked in Wrexham for reading a broadsheet newspaper, never mind liking artistic things. Go anywhere except Wrexham. I do.
  • one down the overton arcade is pretty funky
  • People in Wrexham don't like art, generally. I tend tto go to galleries in Birmingham or London and do the same if I am buying anything, but Chester has some nice art dealers.
  • there is no culture in wrexham and if you have any your normally beaten up!!!!
  • Being cultured gets you beaten up round here!
  • Squires on Charles Street, Tops...
  • Bangles n Beads is great for mad jewellery
  • The array of ANDY COBRA graffiti found in Wrexham's beautiy spots has not lost any of its appeal since its appearance in mid 80s. Breathtaking.
  • ... Art, in Wrexham... be serious the place is the 'real' version of Pleasentville
  • Wrexham is a primeval town, to say arts and craft is an overstatement.
  • The Owl Shop,Granny's Attic,Proper Gander,Tywyn Pottery.
  • hmm?
  • on the clinic wall brymbo
