Salisbury's historic Charter Fair to return

It's nearly that time of year for us to enjoy all the fun of the fair!

Salisbury City Council has confirmed the return of Salisbury Charter Fair on Sunday 17 October until Wednesday 20 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.

Salisbury's fair is one of the longest running in the country. 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 and it's happened every year since.

The Mayor of Salisbury, Councillor Caroline Corbin will officially open the 2021 Charter Fair on Sunday 17 October at 2pm alongside fellow Salisbury City Councillors and members of the Showmen’s Guild Western Section.

There will be plenty of fun for all the family with fair favourites including the carousel, dodgems and waltzer as well as other exciting rides for the thrill seekers.

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.

The Fair will open from 2pm until 9pm on Sunday, and then 11am until 10pm Monday through to Wednesday.

Get ready to roll up, roll up!
