Rockbourne Fair – Late Night Shopping

The grand opening of the Rockbourne Fair was held yesterday at Salisbury Racecourse.

The annual event which raises money for the Stars Appeal continues today and tomorrow – with late night shopping until 8pm this evening.

Organisers say, “People looking for gorgeous gifts, delightful treats and beautiful accessories will be delighted with this boutique shopping experience – and all for a good cause”. 

Over 100 handpicked Artisan stalls have been carefully curated with unique offerings from fashion, jewellery, and luxury homeware to gourmet food and toys.  With two more days to go, there’s ample time to shop to your heart’s content and play a role in supporting The Stars Appeal.

Miss Anna Aertssen, Breast Surgeon at Salisbury Hospital and Stars Appeal Ambassador, said, “Launching the Rockbourne Fair is always an honour, but feeling the vibrant energy from both the shoppers and stallholders today truly emphasises the community spirit this event fosters.

“Remember, every purchase made is a step closer to our goal of raising £1 million for the Stars Appeal, enhancing care for patients at Salisbury District Hospital.”

With late-night shopping this evening, the Fair made a promising start to its three-day boutique shopping experience, as Bev Moulding, Fair Committee chair saying, “We’re all thrilled to see such a positive response on the first day. We have lots of happy shoppers and stallholders and the atmosphere is fantastic. We’re looking forward to seeing more of you, especially for late-night shopping on Thursday”.

The Fair runs until Friday 20th October with a late-night shopping experience until 8pm this evening (Thursday).
