This year's Festival attracted thousands of extra visitors to Salisbury on the first May Bank Holiday of the year.
At its peak, 1pm, it is estimated that up to 10,000 extra people were in the city.
We’re delighted that the Fisherton Street Festival has secured 90% of the funding required to run this year. Along with Wiltshire Council, Salisbury BID has provided the majority of the funding, while it is hoped a grant from Salisbury City Council will secure the remainder of the money required.
The street party, which was put on for the first time last year, saw 7000 people visit Fisherton Street on May bank holiday, boosting trade and raising the profile of the historic street.
The festival is planned for 2nd May this year, with plans for some changes and improvements following feedback after last years hugely popular event. For the full story, follow the link to Spire FM.
Have you spotted these tiny neon footsteps around Salisbury?
It's a marketing strategy by the Business Improvement District ( BID) to get visitors to check out shopping streets they might not have otherwise
The city's fourth Christmas Market opens on Thursday ( 26th November) and tens of thousands of visitors are expected in our city.
The footsteps are stencilled in paint which washes off after about six weeks.
Meanwhile the BID are making sure any empty shops in the city look their best by arranging for the premises to be professionally wrapped with seasonal graphics promoting Salisbury.
The BID is also keen to remind Christmas shoppers that the Culver Street car park is free after 3pm on weekdays and all day Sunday as well as Bank Holidays.
Salisbury has been named as the UK’s happiest city according to a new study, coming ahead of both Winchester and Sunderland in second and third places. The firm Anchor Cheddar found that Salisbury’s ‘true richness’ lead to it’s number one ranking.
Salisbury’s new street cleaning service will be starting on Monday. The joint venture between BID and Salisbury City Council will tackle the scruffy and dirty areas of the city and will provide a service over and above that which is currently being provided. Local firm P M Total Maintenance will be carrying out the work over the next month – keep a look out for them in their BID uniform. To read the full story, please visit the Salisbury Journal.
