Have your say

The 106th Uppingham Fatstock Show will take place tomorrow (Wednesday).

The Market Place in Uppingham will be cleared tonight (Tuesday) and the temporary penning will be put up ready for the show, which includes classes for cattle, sheep and pigs.

Livestock to be exhibited will arrive from 7am on the morning of the show and the judging will take place at about 10am. Prizes will be awarded and the presentation of the challenge cups and special prizes will take place at about 11.30am, followed by a public auction of the pigs and sheep.

The entire show will be cleared and the Market Place cleaned by early afternoon.

The guest for the show will be Christopher Dodds, executive secretary of the Livestock Auctioneers Association. He will present the cups and trophies to the winning exhibitors and speak at the annual lunch, which will be held immediately after the show at The Falcon Hotel.

Show secretary Charles Richardson said: “Livestock entries for all classes are high for what should once again prove to be an excellent show.”
