Contact Rutland Red Hatters

Join us! We love to welcome new members from Rutland and, because Rutland is a very small county, we also have members from beyond our borders. So if you live in Corby, Stamford, Melton or Market Harborough, you’re equally welcome!

Current membership stands at about 60, and because each Hoot appeals to different people, numbers at individual Hoots varies between 15 and 50 women: you definitely dont have to come to every event!

The group is run by Tessa Angell and you can join at any point in the year.


We collect a one-off joining fee of £20, which contributes towards your registration, your official badge and the group’s public liability insurance.

On top of this is our annual membership fee of £20, payable every April. (If you join after September, we charge just £10, and if you join after Christmas your membership will carry through to the following April.

Quite a few Hoots are free. Sometimes we organise a ‘bring and share’ supper to keep costs down. Some Hoots require an entrance fee, event ticket or coach transport: all charges are made clear up front so you can decide what to sign up for.

So join us! The only rules are that you wear a red hat, purple clothing and a smile. Be prepared to make lasting friendships, and most of all to live… love… laugh!

  6. I met a group of red hatters on a recent cruise and felt very envious of the fun they created wherever they went! They told me all about the hatters so I was determined to find out more on my return. I live in Northants so hope you take “outsiders”?
