Don't worry though another venue is bidding to become the city's 'premier' display.

For almost two decades people have flocked to the Livestock Market on Netherhampton Road to watch a huge firework display.

Put on by Wilton Rotary Club, with additional help from Salisbury Rotary Club in the last few years it has traditionally attracted big crowds, so why the change?

A spokesperson for Salisbury Rotary Club has told Spire FM there are "various reasons" why the event won't be held this November.

The fireworks at the city's Livestock market have proved very popular over the years.


The Salisbury & South Wilts Sports Club says in light of that it has taken the decision to ramp up its own annual firework display.

In conjunction with A1 Roadcraft and local firework company Smart Pyrotechnics it aims to "provide Salisbury with a fantastic firework display."

It'll take place on Saturday 2nd November at the sports club on Wilton Road, they'll be no parking except for blue badge but a free bus service will operate from Wilton Park and Ride and the city centre.


Tickets will be available soon from

£10 for an adult with one child going free, £5 for each additional child from 4 to 16 years old.

Children under 4 go free.


The rotary clubs have told Spire FM they hope to return with a bang next year in the grounds of Salisbury Cathedral.

Next year marks the 800th anniversary of the founding of Salisbury Cathedral.
