Lots of events to participate in at Bangor-On-Dee Racecourse, Xplore! and Bolesworth Castle.

Bangor-On-Dee Racecourse

Flash: A Tribute to Queen will bring the iconic band’s high energy and timeless tunes to North Wales’ only racecourse on Tuesday, 5th September.

The entertainment follows a thrilling, six-card jump meeting. For those unable to attend the afternoon’s racing, the racecourse has now created a music-only ticket option for £10. It provides entry to the racecourse from 5.30pm to watch the Queen tribute act.

Principality Coding Club

Xplore! is hosting three Coding Club sessions in their Henblas Street Centre this month. Principality Building Society funds the activities. It allows attendees to get stuck into a range of coding and look at movement, sensing, gameplay, design, and how coding interacts with the real world.

The clubs are for 9 to 12 year olds, adults can stay and join in if they wish. The ticket includes everything you need to have a go, plus a snack and a drink.

The sessions will be held as after-school clubs running on Wednesday afternoons 4-5.30pm on the 13th, 20th and 27th of September. Due to funding, they can run the sessions at a hugely discounted price of £5 per child. Spaces are limited and booking is essential so sign your child up today for some coding fun.
