The annual Salisbury Charter Fair will return this month.
The event, in the Market Place and Guildhall Square, is set to run from Sunday, October 16 until Wednesday, October 19.
The fair promises to light up the centre of Salisbury with a 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.
Now, almost 800 years later, Mayor of Salisbury Councillor Tom Corbin will officially open the Charter Fair on October 16 at 2pm alongside fellow Salisbury City Councillors and members of the Showmen’s Guild Western Section.
Organisers say the Charter Fair will bring plenty of fun for all the family with fair favourites including the carousel, dodgems and waltzers, as well as other exciting rides.
Juvenile rides will cost £2 and most other rides £3, with some prices rising after 6pm.
The Fair will open from 2pm until 9pm on Sunday, and then 11am until 10pm from Monday to Wednesday.
