Wednesday morning November 30th saw the unique Uppingham Fatstock Show held for the 110th time in the Market Place, Uppingham, Rutland. The annual show is the only one of its kind in the UK still held in temporary pens especially erected for the purpose in a town market place.  

Cattle, sheep and pigs were on show with prizes and challenge cups being awarded around 11.30am. The event was followed by an annual luncheon in The Falcon Hotel. Special guest this year was Norfolk's Barry Hawkins, an Auctioneer, Land Agent and Valuer. 

Many unable to travel to Uppingham and witness the show viewed it online on the Uppingham Webcam. A first this year were viewers from China who joined regulars from France, Germany, Australia and the USA.  The show was also broadcast on Rutland Radio and Radio Leicester.
