The Civic Party will then process back to Salisbury Guildhall via St Thomas’ Square.

Blue Boar Row, and other roads along the parade route will be shut to traffic between 10.15am and 11.45am and again at 12.15pm until 1.30pm approximately to ensure crowd safety and traffic diversions will be in place.

Due to the current Fisherton Street works and one-way traffic system, the council advises that the public avoid driving into the city via Fisherton Street during this time.

The council also advises avoiding parking in the Central car park on the morning of the event as further delays are expected due to these closures.
