  15. 15. 2928 DiscoverRutlandtwitter.com/discoverrutland Theatre,Heritage &TheArts DISCOVER The arts are thriving in Rutland; whenever you come to visit there will be something going on – whether you prefer fine art, live music, Shakespeare or comedy, you’ll find it all here… Art Galleries There are many art galleries to enjoy in the towns of Oakham and Uppingham - some pieces are worth many thousands of pounds. There’s an active arts community in Rutland who regularly hold a rolling programme of exhibitions in various locations around the county, such as the Victoria Hall in Oakham, so look out for these during your stay. Theatres Rutland offers a choice of indoor and outdoor theatres! The widely renowned Tolethorpe Hall, home of the much loved Stamford Shakespeare Company, offers magical performances of Shakespearean classics and family favourites in an open-air setting, with all the comfort of an indoor theatre. The magic of Tolethorpe begins when you enter the grounds, whether you enjoy a picnic on the lawn or meal in one of the elegant restaurants, it is worth arriving in good time to soak in the atmosphere, before being seated beneath an all-weather canopy to enjoy an enchanting performance on a woodland stage. The three plays for 2014 are As You Like It, The Taming of the Shrew and Alice in Wonderland & Through the looking Glass. Or if you prefer a more traditional theatre experience head to Uppingham Theatre, which has built an enviable reputation for the quality of its live entertainment. From West End shows to top class symphony orchestras and amazing jazz performances, its events diary is packed all year round. Did you know: The chancel  of St Andrews Church in  Lyddington, was built with acoustic pots placed in recesses near the tops of the walls in the early 14th century. This amplifies the sound providing splendid acoustics, making it the perfect home for Music in Lyddington, who provide fine music in a regular series of high quality concerts for all to enjoy. Historic Houses There are many interesting buildings in and around Rutland; making it a great base for exploring. Belton House, Belvoir Castle, Burghley House, Rockingham Castle and Grimsthorpe Castle are all within a short drive. Peterborough Cathedral is just 30 minutes away. And why not discover some of the beautiful historic buildings in Rutland itself - make sure you visit Oakham Castle and Lyddington Bede House.
