Christmas in Uppingham – Thursday, 1st December, 2016

Halloween, Bonfire Night and then it’s that festive time of year again, CHRISTMAS!!!

Over the past few months, the Uppingham Town Partnership and its ardent group of Volunteers have been planning the 2016, Christmas in Uppingham, late night shopping event scheduled for Thursday, December 1 The event is paid for by the generous sponsorhip of local businesses and the participating market stalls, crafters and food vendors.

Further to the success of 2015, this year we are aiming for an even higher quality event, with a wider range of activities and even more festive entertainment to suit all tastes and ages. In additional to the popular entertainment, like the skating rink, face-painting and Santa’s Grotto, you can expect to see reindeer, Disney characters, illuminated street entertainers and lots of little ballerinas performing their own version of The Nutcracker! We intend to make it a very merry evening which the local townsfolk can enjoy, and will continue to attract a growing number of visitors to the town.

If you can think of additional ways in which we could celebrate, please feel free to share your ideas, and if you’d like to help out, even for an hour, please email

Seasonal wishes to everyone!
