Road closures for Horse Fair

Drivers around Wickham are advised to allow more time for their journeys or consider alternative routes on Monday 20 May due to road closures for the annual horse fair.


The event is likely to be attended by more than 1,000 visitors from across the country and will feature the traditional horse run, fairground rides and market stalls.


Wickham Square will be closed for two days from noon on Sunday 19 May 2019. Closures will also affect the A334 between the traffic signals at Blind Lane and the roundabout at the junction of the A32 – both from 5am to 8pm on May 20.


Arrangements have been made for horse boxes to be parked on the east side of the A334 between the north end of The Square and the junction at Blind Lane and Titchfield Lane. Any vehicle parked in an unauthorised place will be towed away


Signage has been placed along the route to provide advance information about the road closures.

Permits have been provided for residents to allow access through the closure points, although the Winchester/Fareham Road adjacent to The Square will not be passable.


Residents whose access is affected have been provided with a dedicated emergency telephone number and officers in high visibility uniform will be on duty throughout the event.
