Salisbury Charter Fair takes over the Market Place; lighting up the city centre and bringing fun for all the family!
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. That same Charter granted the city permission to hold a market every Tuesday. Both the Charter Market and Annual Fair are still held to this very day.
At Salisbury's Charter Fair, visitors can typically find the traditional fair favourites including dodgems, hook-a-duck, waltzer, ghost train and more. And of course not forgetting the candy floss and toffee apples!
The Fair will open from 2pm until 9pm on Sunday 17th October, and then 11am until 10pm Monday through to Wednesday.
Nearly all rides will cost just £2 a go until 6pm with juvenile rides costing £2 at all times. Some prices may rise after 6pm.
This family friendly light and sound experience is back with all new content which shines the spotlight on the beauty and splendour of our galaxy and planet and helps us contemplate our personal place in the universe.
Soundscapes combined with spectacular projections both inside and outside the Cathedral will immerse you in the wonderous beauty of our world from sunrise to sunset and reflect on the fragility of nature and our impact on it.
Admire the wonderous expanse of space, the power and might of the ocean and the delicate flutter of a beautiful butterfly’s wings… and much, much more.
DATES have been announced for this year’s Early Early Christmas Fair (EECF).
The event, which had to be held virtually last year due to the pandemic, is back at Tedworth Park in Tidworth on Tuesday September 28, 2pm to 9.30pm, and Wednesday 29, 9.30am to 4pm. But it will also be online after the physical event finishes.
The fair is in support of the ABF The Soldiers Charity.
Organisers said: “We are so looking forward to welcoming you all at this year’s EECF at Tedworth Park, Tidworth, Wiltshire. As many of you will know, this hugely successful event has been running for over 28 years, and after last year’s huge support online we are so excited to be bringing it back both live, and virtually after the live event closes.
