Stolen Wrexham banner may turn up on eBay

November 16, 2010 by  

A 7 foot sign advertising a concert to be held at Wrexham’s William Aston Hall went missing, meaning that the services of banner printing companies in Wrexham may be called upon to save the day.

The concert was to be held at the hall on Saturday 13th November and the venue was to play host to the Fron Male Voice Choir. The Fron Male Voice Choir is acknowledged as a successful and international male voice choir from the Froncysyllte area near to Oswestry. The enormous 7 foot banner was being hung from a building in Johnstown up until Saturday the 6th November when overnight it went missing.

Theories are abound that the banner will turn up on eBay after the Choir have found that their various posters and flyers distributed to promote their concerts are often taken and then turn up on the internet auction site, EBay, and are being sold for money. The banner, being the latest item to go missing, features the photo of Margaret Keys, the Irish soprano who featured at the 13th November concert. David Jones, the choir’s chairman, claimed that the choir’s concert at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow was a good example of what has been happening with the choir’s promotional materials. After just a week of the concert event, their marketing posters were up for sale on eBay. Mr Jones however was bemused as to why someone would take such a large banner and how much demand there would be for a 7 foot banner.
