The annual local festival will be using the building’s distinctive glass front for a stunning display of vertical dancing for its opening event on 21st April.  
Other activities during the evening are linked with the Year of Legends 2017 campaign, including members of Anvil productions dressed in medieval costumes, a climbing wall and cave, archery and an opportunity to see the iconic wooden dragon carved by sculptor Simon O’Rourke.
Local pupils from Ysgol Aberconwy have also been tasked with writing a poem about Yr Afanc, the legendary monster who was said to live in the River Conwy. Two winning poems will be read out during the evening.
Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure Ken Skates said: 
“The Year of Legends is about bringing our past to life and creating new legends for the future.  It’s great to see how a local festival such as Trakz has adopted the themes of the campaign this year.  I’m also pleased that the Welsh Government office in Llandudno Junction is hosting this community event.”
The Trakz festival will begin at 5.30pm at the Welsh Government office, with further events planned in the town itself over the weekend.
