Salisbury City News

The latest updates and news related to the city of Salisbury and the council.

Salisbury City Council, in partnership with Wessex Community Action, are looking for a group of 12 young people, aged 14 – 17, to form a local grant making committee called the Salisbury YouthBank, and to train as young grant makers to distribute the £5000 of youth grants in March.

Participants will learn the skills required and be trained on what to look out for when assessing grant applications, through a 6 session course - three in November and three in January.


Salisbury City Council and The Unit are excited to announce the return of the popular Teenage Market onto Salisbury’s Market Place on Sunday 26 October from 11am – 3pm.  With stalls and performances by local young people, the Teenage Market is an exciting opportunity for all the community with the chance to purchase amazing one off pieces, sample delicious foods, take part in workshops and watch the latest up and coming new talent in the city.

Stall holders will be selling everything from home baked delicious treats, intricately designed T-shirts, hand crafted bags, lamp shades and exquisite jewellery to beautifully illustrated prints and lots more.


Salisbury’s third annual Apple Day celebration will be held on Sunday 19th October from 10am – 12.30pm at the Community Orchard, Fisherton.

This free event will include family activities for all ages: from making new labels for the trees with local artist Charlotte Moreton to wildlife workshops with the Bees Knees Pop Up Bug School. Entertainment will be provided by the effervescent Mrs Apples as well.


Salisbury’s annual Charter Fair will return to the City from Sunday 19 October until Wednesday 22 October.

The funfair this year will officially open on Sunday evening at 7pm as a celebration of 125 years of the Showmen’s Guild Western Section. It will then continue daily from 11am until late showcasing traditional and modern rides, stalls and attractions.


There is still time to get involved in Salisbury’s illuminated carnival on Friday 24 October at 7.30pm.
