altOver 250 cars registered for the 2017 Stilton Cheese Classic Vehicle Run which commences each year in Uppingham, Rutland. This year's run was held on Sunday April 23rd in excellent weather.

On a warm and sunny morning, vehicle owners paraded their vehicles and sometimes themselves (pictured) in costume in keeping with the age of their vehicles following registration at The Falcon Hotel.

Cafes, pubs and galleries opened early to welcome the visitors creating a festive atmosphere in the market place and high street. 

The annual event raises funds for the local Air Ambulance and was broadcast on the Uppingham Webcam.
