Snow comes to Salisbury as machine brings festive cheer

Snow has been forecast for several locations around Salisbury city centre in the run-up to Christmas.
This festive season, the team at Salisbury BID is making sure that dreams of a white Christmas become a reality by deploying a snow machine.

The snow machine has already been popping up at various locations across the city, including in The Maltings, The Old George Mall, Guildhall Square and Salisbury Cathedral.
Andy Milton, snow ranger at Salisbury BID, said, “We wanted to bring some festive cheer to the city this Christmas and what better way than by making it snow. We hope it will bring a smile to the faces of the shoppers in Salisbury.”

The snow machines have been used on multiple TV and film sets to create magical, realistic, snow scenes.
Some of the projects that feature the snow include Miley Cyrus’ ‘Adore You’ music video and festive adverts for McDonald’s, Waitrose, M&S and Cadbury’s.

The machine uses a bio-degradable, non-toxic, non-staining and dermatologically tested snow fluid which is safe for people, the planet, pets and wildlife. It will continue to pop up in pedestrianised areas of the city so that children and adults alike can enjoy the magic of snow at Christmas.
Of course, the snow machine weather forecast is dependent on the actual weather forecast and is subject to change at any moment.

With that in mind, here’s the schedule in the run-up to Christmas, weather permitting:
Thursday, 15th December 4pm at Old George Mall
Thursday, 15th December 6pm at Salisbury Cathedral
Saturday, 17th December 1pm at Salisbury Cathedral
Saturday, 17th December 3pm at The Maltings
Saturday, 17th December 4pm at Old George Mall
Monday, 19th December 4pm at Guildhall Square
Tuesday, 20th December 4pm at Old George Mall
