Tŷ Pawb Awards Season

Tŷ Pawb Gallery Visits – They’re Reopening!

As part of their phased reopening, Tŷ Pawb is now taking bookings for free family visits to their gallery!

These slots are available for household bubbles (maximum 15 people, including members under 18 in order to count as a ‘family’ group).

The booking includes a guided gallery tour and drawing activities. Limited slots are available Wednesday to Saturday. If you would like to book a visit for your family group, email them at typawb@wrexham.gov.uk or phone them on 01978 292 144.

Tickets for general public release will be available to book from 7th December.


This year, the theme of the Open is ‘creativity during lockdown’. To this end, the response to this theme has been inspiring, demonstrating the invention and resilience shown by artists from across Wrexham, Wales and the United Kingdom.

They received submissions from over 350 artists who each provided three artworks for consideration. Three judges then selected a range of works that not only fitted the theme of the exhibition, but also complemented each other and created a coherent display.

The judges making the selection were:

Lesley James – Winner of Wrexham Open 2018 Judges’ Prize
Katy McCall – Learning Manager at Manchester Art Gallery
Ffion Rhys – Curator, Aberystwyth Arts Centre

Together, the judges agreed on a selection of 117 artworks from 102 artists.
