'The story began in 1991 ... Since then it has grown steadily. The consistently high quality of the performers at Music in Lyddington, most of whom have already made their Wigmore Hall, London, debut, has been a crucial factor in the success of the society. The performers themselves have told us how much they relish the relaxed atmosphere and the excellent recital grand piano ...'

‘Founded in 1980 by a small group of people who were keen to start the first “Musical Theatre” Society in the County, this being due both to a love of music and theatre generally and also to preserve the name of Rutland - which at that time was under threat. Acting and non acting members welcome. The first show was Showboat, performed in Uppingham Theatre in April 1981 to much acclaim. Since then the Company has gone from strength to strength and is now a well respected part of the Rutland scene.’

'The Rutland Sinfonia is an amateur orchestra ... but there is nothing "amateur" about the quality of our performances. Founded in 1976 ... our aim is still to bring high quality, enjoyable and inspiring performances of orchestral music to smaller towns and villages in rural areas in and around Rutland ... We have made enormous progress in recent seasons in the quality and chemistry of our music making ... Just as we welcome young people in the orchestra, we also welcome families and young people, and their friends, in our audiences. We are always interested in suggestions and ideas, and our thanks go to those who complete and leave the feed back forms.’

A major choral work is performed in the Spring ... The choir is open to all, no audition is required although the ability to read music is an advantage’.

‘The Band has been in its present form since 2010, but many members have played together in Uppingham and at Uppingham Community College for many years. Being a community band, our goal is to create opportunities for musicians of all ages to make music. For this reason, we keep subs very low ... And because no-one gets paid for organising or leading the band, our running costs are kept to a minimum. Which means that our community of villages, churches and charities can easily afford to have us play at their fund-raising or other events.‘
