ENVIRONMENT

We are mindful and considerate of the environmental impact of the artist development work that we undertake, especially where travel is involved, and we are continually learning and actively taking measures to ensure we consider, reduce and offset the carbon footprint of our wider work. We welcome ideas to improve this work moving forward. Read about the work we’re doing HERE

PRESS HISTORY

GETTING HERE

Road
Wrexham is handily placed for the A55 expressway to the west, the M62 travelling east, the M53 and M56 going north and the A5 and M54 heading south. Liverpool and Manchester are an hour away, Birmingham less than two and even London and Glasgow are within four hours.
Train
There are two railway stations. Central Station which is, as you might imagine, bang in the middle of town. And General Station, a three-minute walk out of town. Two stations with two direct links to London. Choose between Euston and Marylebone. The train can also take the strain to Cardiff, Chester and Shrewsbury with connections to Liverpool. And bus links to the beautiful Ceiriog Valley.

ARTIST APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN
APPLY TO PLAY HERE
Important information:
*Selected artists will be notified before 1st February 2023. Please note, we do receive circa 5,000 artist applications, and with only a small core festival team it’s not possible for us to get back to everybody. If you have not heard from us by 1st February then it’s unlikely we will have a showcase slot for you on this occasion. We will however hold your details on file up until the dates of the festival in-case a suitable slot does open up.
*FOCUS Wales does not accept applications from cover bands or tribute acts.
*Please do let us know if you have any needs around access. Our festival is here for everyone. You can email us at info@focuswales.com to discuss this.
*Performance submissions will not be accepted via email.
