A RENOWNED male choir from the Chirk area is set to feature in the highly-anticipated new series of "Welcome to Wrexham".

The Fron Male Voice Choir will make an appearance in the TV series produced by Hollywood icons Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, which is set to premiere on September 12.

"Welcome to Wrexham" follows Reynolds and McElhenney in their bid to turn Wrexham FC into a footballing force.


Speaking about their involvement, Fron choir secretary Steve Winn said: “We were contacted by FX Networks in February 2023 asking if we would be interested in working with them for the promotional trailer for the upcoming season of Welcome to Wrexham and we immediately said ‘yes’.”

The Fron Male Voice Choir, celebrated for their musical excellence and an impressive discography, enjoys international acclaim, with triumphs at prestigious events like the Llangollen Eisteddfod on four separate occasions.

Following a successful first series, "Welcome to Wrexham" has unveiled two captivating Season 2 trailers featuring the Choir Froncysyllte.

This musical partnership demonstrates the choir's deep links to their community, local football team, and the preservation of Welsh traditions.

Notably, the Fron Choir's performance of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" in front of 10,000 jubilant fans during the season's final match against Borehamwood, where Wrexham AFC clinched the National League title after a 15-year hiatus, plays a pivotal role in the TV series.

The Choir’s participation weaves into the series' overarching narrative.

The Fron Choir has always had close ties to Wrexham AFC and the city. A chorister and one of the brothers-in-song, Ian 'Jacko' Roberts, was a man who exemplified the spirit of Wrexham.

For several generations he was the beating heart of the Wrexham AFC matchday experience and was well known to all Wrexham AFC followers.

Sadly, Jacko died in 2017 but the “King of the Kop” will always be remembered.
