The Town

The historic centre of Wisbech has a range of shops and there are market stalls every day with the busiest days being Thursday, Friday and Saturday. There is also a car boot on Thursdays and Sundays

Saturday 7th July

On Rose Fair Saturday the whole town comes alive with a parade of floats at 11am and 2.00pm, organised by the Wisbech Round Table.  The theme for 2018 is " For the Love of Music"

Pride of The Parade

Having listened to feedback, instead of a Rose Queen this year there will be a "Pride of The Parade"

The idea behind Pride of the Parade is to provide a way for young people that have achieved something great to be recognised.

Entries and nominations will need to explain why the individual deserves to be recognised for what they have achieved. This could be sporting or academic success, volunteering, supporting or caring for others – anything that demonstrates going the extra mile or perseverance.

Prizes will be awarded by the Round Table, which will be tailored to suit the winners.

Entry to the competition is open to anyone of school age (6-16) with one senior winner (aged 12-16) and two joint junior winners (aged 6-12).

To enter or nominate simply 'Like' the Wisbech Round Table Facebook page and send a message.

Otherwise send email entries to

The closing date will be 1st June 2018.

Come and help us celebrate our Rose Fair!

Spend a day in the Fens and visit one of the finest flower festivals in England, but there is also so much more to see and do in Wisbech, especially during Rose Fair.


There is also entertainment in Museum Square, exhibitions in the historic Wisbech Museum (one of the oldest museums in the country and well worth a visit in its own right!), and a display of historic vehicles in the car park.  Full details of exhibitions, entertainment and other events are published in the Rose Fair programme.
