Your Unique Wedding

at the Rutland Showground 2018


Choosing a suitable wedding venue will be the biggest decision in your wedding planning, with many people looking for something unusual or different. 

At the Rutland Showground, between mid June and 1st September, we offer you exclusive access to the entire site, allowing you the freedom to create the wedding of your dreams.

We have produced our wedding packages to give you full access for between 2 and 5 days. We provide a blank canvas with everything you need to design the wedding you have always wanted, in your own space.

The site boasts its own green field campsite for tents and caravans with a permanent shower block and toilets, great for guests and especially families wishing to stay overnight.

The Rutland Pavilion seats up to 150 (120 with dance floor) and is equipped with its own commercial kitchen and bar area all on ground level overlooking the beautiful Rutland countryside. The expansive space around the Pavilion allows you to add anything from a marquee to a fairground.
