  1. Rutland Walking, Cycling and Outdoor Festival

The Rutland Walking, Cycling and Outdoor Festival is a 2 week event, running from the 9th to the 24th of October, and includes a variety of activities for participants of all ages and abilities.

There will be over 20 sessions running, including pursuits such as Nordic walking, countryside rambles, and casual bike rides. Most of these events are free and require booking in advance.

On Friday the 15th of October participants can join a walk from Whissendine to Oakham that covers approximately 5 miles.

Alternatively, on Saturday the 16th there is another free walk from The Old White Hart in Lyddington which leaves at 10:00am. This is a great option for those who are looking for a bit more of a challenge, as this walk is an 8 mile circuit that covers a great deal of Lyddington, taking in the scenery as you go.

  1. The Vicar of Dibley Comedy Dinner Show

A must for fans of the classic British sitcom!

Geraldine is hosting a fundraising dinner to raise money for the new church window… and you're all invited! She's even thrown a delicious 3 course meal into the mix.

The only trouble is, Alice and Hugo think everyone's here for their wedding rehearsal. Not wanting to let down the dim-witted duo, Geraldine plays along, avoiding Owen's less than tactful advances. Mrs. Cropley's in charge of the cake, Frank's left in charge of Dibley radio, and Jim doesn't know, no, no what he's doing.

Will Geraldine be able to raise enough money for the window and keep the villagers happy?

This is an interactive parody show with a 3 course dinner included and will take place at the Wisteria Hotel on the 15th October 2021 at 6:30pm.

£49.50 per person.
