The Rockbourne Fair 2023: Boutique shopping with a cause returns this Autumn
Weds 18th – Fri 20th October (late night shopping on Thurs 19th)
The Rockbourne Fair returns this Autumn offering unparalleled artisan shopping while supporting The Stars Appeal, Salisbury Hospital’s charity.
This year’s fair promises late-night shopping on Thursday 19th and features over 100 handpicked stalls. Visitors will be treated to a rich variety of products – from fashion, cosmetics, jewellery, gourmet food and luxury homeware to toys – all carefully curated items not typically found on the high street.
The Rockbourne Fair has become an annual shopping fixture in Salisbury. It is also an event where every purchase makes a difference. After raising a phenomenal £51,000 last year, the Rockbourne Fair Committee continues its mission to raise critical funds for the Stars Appeal.
Venue: Salisbury Racecourse, Salisbury, Wiltshire SP2 8PN. Ample free parking available.
Dates & Times:
Wednesday, 18th October: 10am – 5.30pm
Thursday, 19th October: 10am – 8pm
Friday, 20th October: 9.30am – 3pm
Entry Fee: £5 (Special £3 entry after 6pm on Thursday).
Lord Pembroke, President of the Stars Appeal, praised the event: “The Rockbourne Fair is a win-win for everyone involved. Shoppers get a jumpstart on their Christmas lists, and we get invaluable support for our charity. We owe much to the voluntary organising committee whose tireless efforts make this event a yearly success. The funds we raise help spearhead projects that create tangible, positive change for both patients and staff at Salisbury District Hospital.”
For Bev Moulding, Committee Chair, the Fair is a celebration of community: “Rockbourne Fair has always been more than a shopping event – it’s a fun, social experience, supporting small businesses, and of course, supporting our Salisbury Hospital. We welcome everyone to come with their friends, enjoy lunch in the restaurant, and ‘Shop the Rock’!”
