Haslemere Charter Fair
May 8 @ 12:00 - 17:00
The Haslemere Charter Fair will be open from 12 noon to 5pm on Friday 8th May 2020. The Charter Fair will have a VE Day flavour and we are asking all stallholders to dress their stalls and themselves in an appropriate manner!
The High Street and West Street will be closed to traffic and the entire area turned into an arena where there will be many things to do, rides to enjoy and lots of stalls all offering you a wide range of products and services and fun for all the family.
There will be a free Courtesy Bus which follows a route from Shottermill (the bus stop outside the Working Man’s Club) direct to the Fair. The buses will run from 11:30am to 5:00pm.
In 1393 Richard II and the Bishop of Salisbury confirmed an Order dated 29th April 1221 allowing a weekly market and an annual fair to be held in the town. Although the weekly markets were already established the first Fair was reported to be held 1394.
The Charter Fair is organized by a group of volunteers from Haslemere and surrounding villages and has been running every 2 years since it was reinstated in 1984. It is supported by Haslemere Town Council and organised by Haslemere Events.
There is no entrance fee for visitors.
