Charter Fair


The Salisbury Charter Fair will return to Salisbury’s Market Place & Guildhall Square.

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. 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.

The Charter Fair will take place on the following dates from 11am until 10pm:

Sunday 14 October
Monday 15 October
Tuesday 16 October
Wednesday 17 October

Charter Fair Fees
