In 1227 – three 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 Charter Market and Annual Fair are still held to this very day.
In 2014 the Charter Fair will run from Sun 19 - Wed 22 October. The Fair will open at 6pm on 19 October.
Regular and Floating applications are invited for the Charter Fair.
All applicants must apply in writing to Claire Burden, Business Manager,
Salisbury City Council, The Guildhall, Market Place, Salisbury SP1 1JH.
Deadline for applications is 27 June 2014.
