Salisbury BID Supports Lift Off! Weekend

28th June 2018

Four days of free entertainment this August Bank Holiday will celebrate the arts across the city of Salisbury and launch Wiltshire Creative’s first season of programming.

Wiltshire Creative is the new organisation that brings together Salisbury Arts Centre, Salisbury International Arts Festival and Salisbury Playhouse.

With live music and fireworks, street theatre and circus, family fun and arts activities, the Lift Off! Weekend runs from Friday 24th to Monday 27th August at Salisbury Arts Centre, Salisbury Playhouse and in the streets of Salisbury.

With thousands expected to attend and get involved, Salisbury BID are supporting the city centre event.

Wiltshire Creative Artistic Director Gareth Machin said: “Lift Off! will be a free party for the whole city, a celebration of this creative city and the new organisation as we open the doors for our first season of work. We hope as many people as possible will come into the city and join us for a spectacular weekend.”

Kicking off the weekend will be Picnic in the Close with live music in the Cathedral Close from 7pm on Friday 24th August. Music will come from local bands The Deloreons and Just Us. At the end of the evening fireworks will herald the opening of the Lift Off! Weekend in spectacular style in the Close.
