Enjoy fun at the fair in Salisbury next month
Salisbury City Council is pleased to announce the return of the annual Salisbury Charter Fair on Sunday 15 October until Wednesday 18 October in Salisbury Market Place and Guildhall Square.
The fair will light up the centre of Salisbury with an exciting variety of traditional and modern rides, stalls and attractions.
In 1227 – seven years after the building of Salisbury Cathedral began – King Henry III granted a Charter to the Bishop of Salisbury to hold a fair on the third Monday in October.
The Charter Fair attracts thousands of people to the Market Place every year bringing plenty of fun for all the family with traditional fair favourites including the carousel, dodgems and waltzer. Feeling brave? Try out Oxygen – the exciting new ride for thrill seekers! There will also be street food and sweet treats including toffee apples to enjoy.
The Mayor of Salisbury, Councillor Atiqul Hoque will officially open the Charter Fair on Sunday 15 October at 2pm alongside fellow Salisbury City Councillors and members of the Showmen’s Guild Western Section.
Juvenile rides will cost just £2 until 6pm.
The Fair will open from 2pm until 9pm on Sunday, and then 11am until 10pm Monday through to Wednesday.
