Wrexham theatre site to be auctioned

The site of Wrexham’s Hippodrome, the historic theatre that held its first performance in 1909 and was destroyed by fire in 2008, is to up for sale at Pugh’s North West property auction, at the AJ Bell Stadium in Manchester on 4 June.

In the wake of the devastating fire, the building was demolished a decade ago and the 0.2 acre site, on Henblas Street in the town centre, has been given a guide price of £130,000. The theatre site has planning consent for the construction of two retail units at ground floor level, 10 studio apartments and three one‐bedroom flats on the first and second floors.

Paul Thompson, managing director of auction house Pugh, said: “It’s good news that the site of the once flourishing theatre, which has stood empty for several years, could soon be brought back to life with a potential new retail and residential development that looks set be an asset to Wrexham.

“The town is well connected, both to Wales and the North West of England, and the site stands opposite the former BHS store which is also apparently due to be refurbished by its new owner.”
