altThe Uppingham Town Cryer is pictured announcing the opening of the Uppingham Parish Church Christmas Bazaar on Saturday November 25th as members of the local Fatstock Show committee erected the town's traditional Christmas tree in the market place.

This well attended event offered a range of delights on a cold winter's morning including home made jewellery, bric a brac, home made produce and handicrafts. Santa was in his grotto to discuss his forthcoming visit with expectant children and hot bacon rolls and drinks helped keep out the cold.   

The Uppingham festive season has started!

2017 Fatstock Show PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 25 November 2017 17:33

On Wednesday November 29th, Uppingham Town Centre hosted the 111th Uppingham Fatstock Show. An annual event unique in the UK.  Once again the show was broadcast around the world by the award winning Uppingham Webcam. 

Pictured is the control centre of the webcam which overlooks the market place venue for the show.

Visitors to the town for the event were full of praise for the farming community and the committee that organises the show. The manner in which the  committee is able to run the show in the heart of the town, yet keep its high street open for traffic and trading, receives much praise every year. The show is an outstanding visitor attraction and testimony to the town's rural heritage and history.

Remarkably, by mid afternoon, the market place is swept and restored to its usual role as public highway and town centre parking.  Why not look in through the webcam next year on the last Wednesday in November 2018.
