altLocal Artisans and Craft Traders have praised the outcomes of Uppingham's first charity organised commercial Christmas Craft Fair held in The Falcon Hotel. The event was organised by the Rotary Club of Uppingham. The Fair will now become an annual event contributing to the income of local artisans, craft traders and charitable causes supported by Rotary. This year the latter included the Uppingham Hopper. 

Early feedback from traders included such observations as:- "Thank you for organising this event. I did really well and am very grateful to have an outlet for my work. Footfall was really good". "Thank you for organising a great Christmas Craft Fair. One of the best! The room and atmosphere and the range of crafts was ideal. The footfall of visitors was wonderful".  "Thank you to the organising team. A great day". "I look forward to participating in any future events". 

Plans are now under way to organise a 2018 Christmas Craft Fair. This year's Fair had a waiting list of traders hoping to participate in the event of a cancellation. The possibility of expansion is being explored.
