Charter Market closure on Saturday 29 June 2019

Tuesday, 09 April 2019

Salisbury City Council has taken the decision to close the Charter Market on Saturday 29 June 2019. Salisbury is the proud host of this year’s National Armed Forces Day celebration and a military parade is planned for the city centre which will pass close to the Market Square. Working closely with Wiltshire Council to support this momentous occasion, it became clear that the combination of road closures, logistics of the event and the scale of the security surrounding the parade would mean that the Charter Market could not be held. Traders would be unable to enter the city to set up their stalls and the security measures required would prohibit normal trading.
