What's on

29th November - 23rd December 2018


Every year we have a wonderful variety of family- friendly events over the Christmas Market. For a taste of what was available at the 2017 Christmas Market see below.

Launch Night

On Thursday 23rd November come to the Guildhall Square and celebrate the beginning of the spectacular Christmas Market in an evening full of fantastic entertainment for the whole family. There will be a superb selection of live music from Sarah Saville and the Deloreons. Be one of the first to see the wonderful variety of exhibitors housed in our German style wooden chalets, which will be open for the duration of launch night. Don’t miss the array of street entertainment including stunning glow performers and rutting reindeers, who fight to prove they are the real Rudolf!

Our launch night is unique in bringing hundreds of people together for one fun and festive night in the heart of Salisbury and will continue to build on the success of last year’s event.

The Christmas Lantern Parade

The annual lantern and lights procession will be a show of beautiful creativity which will take place on Thursday 30th November. Join the procession at The Close at 6.15pm as it makes it way towards the warm, inviting atmosphere of the Christmas Market and culminate in a truly glowing show in the Market Square at approximately 7pm.

This year we are delighted to announce the Parade will be run in association with Salisbury Arts Centre again. We are looking forward to another visually spectacular evening with a wonderful and colourful host of handmade lanterns.
