A great day out!

The 2018 Gresford Billy Cart Derby and Easter Fair was a resounding success. With perfect weather and record entries more carts than ever headed down East Gresford’s Park Street on Easter Saturday. The large crowd enjoyed the excitement of the day with a colourful and amazingly complex range of billy carts lining up on the starting grid.

As always there were plenty of extras with a great range of food, markets and stalls offering a variety of products and great fun events including Gresford’s famous Dummy Spitting and Ponypat lotto and Gumboot throwing competitions.

Thank you to all our visitors, volunteers and competitors who helped make the day great.
See you all on Easter Saturday, 20 April 2019! We already have some great new events in the pipeline to make next year’s 20th anniversary event the best ever.

We are always looking for additional help to run this event so if you are interested contact Graham Murphy.
