THE mayor of Oswestry has welcomed a piece of Wonderland into the town after he officially opened a new bar at the Indoor Market.

Councillor Mark Jones officially opened the new 'Through the Looking Glass' bar which is located at the heart of the market on the Bailey Head.

Bar owner Lucinda Coslett was thrilled with the support with a packed crowd on the opening night last week with live music provided to keep the opening night customers entertained while exciting cocktails were enjoyed.

Cllr Jones admitted his delight at being able to declare the new bar officially open.

He said: “This is an exciting new addition to our markets.

"We have a fantastic café and street food culture now at the market not to mention loads of bespoke gifts and services and now we also have this exciting new bar."

David Clough, retail markets and events manager, added: "The intention is to hold late night events on the last Friday of every month and not only will the bar be open late but also a good number of indoor traders will also be selling during the night."
