Roll Up, Roll Up: Salisbury Charter Fair is back

Salisbury Charter Fair will return to the Market Place and Guildhall Square on Sunday 17th October until Wednesday 20th October.

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

The Charter Fair will bring 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.
