In 2008, Salisbury Cathedral is proud to be celebrating the 750th anniversary of the dedication of the Cathedral in 1258. To mark this special occasion there will be a rich tapestry of events and activities most of which take place between April and September 2008. These include the Flower Festival (17- 21 June), Medieval Fair (5 May), a variety of musical events, The Cathedral Open Day and many more!

The Flower Festival will be a spectacular five day festival of colour as the Cathedral comes alive with an extravagance of flowers. The Medieval Fair will be hugely entertaining with falconry, medieval music, hog roasts, court entertainers, and even a Wadworth beer tent (celebrating the famous ‘Bishop’s Tipple’)! At the Cathedral’s Open Day visitors can explore behind the scenes to discover more about the history of this iconic building and the people who live, work and worship there.

Inside the Cathedral discover the best preserved original Magna Carta (AD 1215), and the oldest working clock (AD1386) in Europe. Boy and girl choristers sing daily services continuing a tradition of worship that dates back centuries. Take a tower tour to explore Britain’s tallest Spire and experience the breathtaking views across Salisbury from the top of the tower.
