    Wednesday 27th November 2024 – Uppingham Market Place

    Champion pigs, sheep and cattle are primped and preened for this traditional event held in temporary penning in the market square. Rutland farmers proudly showed off the best of their stock with the aim of encouraging people to buy British and support the industry.

    Taking place on Wednesday morning on Uppingham Market Place, there will be pens full of livestock arriving at 7am, judging commences at 10am and the prize-giving will be at 11.30am.

    Cancelled only by war, the two national out-breaks of the foot and mouth epidemic and Covid-19, this is a unique show being the only event of its kind in the UK still held in temporary penning in the middle of a town.

    The regular weekly fatstock market finished in 1954, with the ending of wartime controls, but the annual Fatstock Show has continued and remains one of the most prestigious events in the town’s calendar and is without a doubt “a jewel in Rutland’s crown”. The show includes classes for cattle, sheep and pigs.
