Rockbourne Fair 2023 is now open

Today (Wednesday October 18th) marks the grand opening of Rockbourne Fair at Salisbury Racecourse, an annual event held at Salisbury Racecourse that raises money for the Hospital’s charity.

Over 100 handpicked Artisan stalls have been carefully curated by the Rockbourne Fair Committee, who have organised the event, with unique offerings from fashion, jewellery, and luxury homeware to gourmet food and toys.

Staff from the hospital, who are also Stars Appeal Ambassadors, attended the event for a special launch this morning.

Miss Anna Aertssen, Breast Surgeon at Salisbury Hospital and Stars Appeal Ambassador, said: “Launching the Rockbourne Fair is always an honour, but feeling the vibrant energy from both the shoppers and stallholders today truly emphasises the community spirit this event fosters. Remember, every purchase made is a step closer to our goal of raising £1 million for the Stars Appeal, enhancing care for patients at Salisbury District Hospital.”

The Fair has made a promising start to its three-day boutique shopping experience, with Bev Moulding, Fair Committee chair saying “We’re all thrilled to see such a positive response on the first day. We have lots of happy shoppers and stallholders and the atmosphere is fantastic. We’re looking forward to seeing more of you, especially for late-night shopping on Thursday!”

The Fair runs until Friday, 20th October with a late-night shopping experience on Thursday, 19th October until 8pm.
