For more information on our town based events take a look at LOVE UPPINGHAM

If you want to organise an event in the town on one of the Town Council's open spaces or in the Market Place - first of all contact the Town Clerk so that the event procedure can be made available to you and any related costs be made known. You can either email townclerk@uppinghamtowncouncil.co.uk or phone on 01572 822681.

An event plan document is here for your information:

Parks & Open Spaces

Uppingham Town Council owns three open spaces, these are Tod's Piece, Beast Hill and Hog Hill. The most significant in terms of size is Tod's Piece which is located a short distance from the town centre.

Tod's Piece is home to Uppingham Town Football Club, Uppingham Bowls Club and 1st Uppingham Scouts. Additionally Tod's Piece has play equipment for a range of ages, a football pitch and skate park. Next to the skate park is a small landscaped garden in the shape of Rutland County. Along the Gainsborough Road boundary are trees donated by Uppingham School for the Millenium Project. This park is subject to local bye-laws which are displayed on site.

Beast Hill and Hog Hill are located off South View close to the Town centre. Both these locations feature in the Uppingham Heritage Trail and as the location suggests enjoy views to the south of Uppingham. Hog Hill has an art installation recently located on site with a locomotive theme overlooking Station Road.

Uppingham Skate Park

The skate park project is now nearly complete and whilst significantly delayed it looks like we have a facility that will be used very much and enjoyed. The final inspection is scheduled for week commencing 11th April 2016 and the security fencing will be removed shortly.

The surround to the skate park will be tidied up with work due to commence soon on creating a new pathway linking some of the play areas, new toilets and skate park - avoiding the need to cross the grassed area. New litter bins will be provided to keep the area tidy.

The video clips shows some skateboarders in action this week now that the new features have been added.
