Home / My Rutland Life / Christmas 2015 in Rutland


Sheep backlitB+W

Like most of England, Rutland is having an unseasonably warm December, and in the run up to Christmas our markets and outdoor activities have been damp and blustery rather than ‘deep and crisp and even’.  Still, the streets of Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford are shining brightly thanks to the festive decorations and individual shops have really gone to town.

My foray to Uppingham Christmas Market at the beginning of December was a blur of sloe gin, local cider, a hog roast, a craft market, carol singing, ice-skating (well, not so much ice as synthetic slidey stuff), and plenty of goodwill. Several gift quandries were fixed in a happy hour or two.

There are lots of Christmas, Twixmas and New Year events around Rutland in the offing: let’s hope the weather stays kind – or at least dry! Happy Christmas.
