THERE was live music, games and Morris dancing as well as giant at Salisbury Museum’s spring fayre.

The event took place on bank holiday Monday, May 2, and was the museum first spring fayre.

Activities on offer included workshops with Sarum Morris, children’s games and crafts in addition to displays of vintage farm vehicles and cars.

The fayre, described as a “trip down memory lane to village fetes of the past”, filled the grounds of Salisbury Museum.

The day also featured pop talks about the museum’s famous Salisbury Giant and his companion Hob-Nob.

A spokesperson for the museum said: “The event was a fantastic success, with over 1,500 people visiting and lots of very positive comments on how the museum had achieved its aim of bringing together the community in a relaxed, fun experience of the traditions of rural Wiltshire.

“The museum, and The Giant look forward to inviting you all back next spring.”
