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 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.
