Saturday At Focus: What’s On!

As we reach the final day of Focus Wales, Wrexham will once again be bustling with bands, musicians and more. The four-day festival has this year been spread across 16 stages and will see more than 150 bands perform in a unique spread of venues including pubs, the University and the now famous Saint Giles’ Church.

Today we seen the addition of two more venues for the Focus connoisseur.  Not wanting to feel outdone by the already unique mix of locations the Wrexham Museum will be hosting part of the Focus Wales festival from 1pm today. Entry to the Wrexham Museum costs £7 for  non-wristband holders.

The final act of the day at the museum will be Bajan-Welsh, bilingual singer-songwriter Kizzy Crawford. Crawford also attended yesterday’s Horizon Wales launch courtesy of BBC Radio Wales.

Also joining the list of venues is the Leader Stage. Set in the heart of Wrexham at the Queen’s Square the Leader stage will be active from 11:30 when host Andy Hickie will be taking to the stage to entice the shoppers of Wrexham.

For the early risers Wrexham’s South will also be live from 1:40pm where I Fight Lions will be taking to the stage opening for Black Moth to headline at 5:50pm.

Your day from Central Station will start at 6pm. For your Saturday Central will be hosting two stages which means even more music for the pound. Kicking off with Wales-based The Reads, Central will be headlined at 9pm by Gulp and 8:30pm for the Keys.

BBC Radio Wales’ Adam Walton presents the closing day’s Saith Seren and will be welcoming Horizons at 8pm ending with The Wild Eyes at 11.

If you’re thinking of taking a break from the music then the Grove Park Theatre will once again be welcoming comics to the stage. With 30 minute sets from Jonathan Williams, Panela Williams, and Norman Lovett starting at 8:50pm and the last act on at 9:40pm it could be a much needed rest-bite.

If you’re thinking your day can end there then you’d be wrong. From 10pm it kicks off at Un Deg Un with The Echo & The Always followed by Brazilian Constantina and ending with the Rope DJ’s After Show at 1am.
