A choral festival has returned to Wrexham town centre for the second year running.

Singing Streets saw choirs and singers of all ages perform across six venues on Saturday, while a public mass sing-a-along also took place.

Britain's Got Talent finalists Only Boys Aloud performed, along with two British Sign Language choirs.

About 30 choirs took part in last year's event, with participants from north Wales, Cheshire and Merseyside.

This year's event was organised by Glyndwr University and Wrexham MP Ian Lucas.

Venues included Wrexham Museum, Lord Street, Queens Square and Hope Street.

Mr Lucas said he was "absolutely thrilled" the festival had returned for a second year.

"It's a great way to celebrate the town's singing tradition," he added.
