About the show

The 44th Lambeth Country Show will return to Brockwell Park on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 July 2018, boasting a unique line-up that celebrates the very best of the city and countryside. With over 150,000 people attending throughout the weekend in 2017, the show is one of the biggest free family festivals in the UK. In 2018, the show will remain free and un-ticketed for all to enjoy.

We have reconfigured a much larger show layout in the park in 2018 for a better visitor experience and we’ve increased the size of popular areas such as the Main Arena and the newly named Brockwell Farm. The main funfair will not be returning this year, however we will still have the children’s funfair and bouncy castle rides.

You can still expect all the attractions of a traditional country show plus much more too. Horticultural shows, sheep and owl displays, home grown vegetable and flower competitions, an abundance of craft and food stalls and our very own on site farm will be there for all to enjoy. Music always plays a big part of the show too, featuring a mix of dub, Afro-beat, disco, jazz, folk, ska and soul. The Village Green stage will showcase an eclectic mix of local talent playing acoustic folk, choir, soul and pop, along with steel orchestras and samba bands. Our Main Stage hosts an array of local and international talent with funk, soul, disco and well known hits on Saturday. Sunday hosts Roots Day with ska, dub and reggae acts from across the globe. All of this and more with a distinctively urban south London vibe.

The event is organised by EventLambeth and part funded by Lambeth Council, along with commercial sponsorship and funding.

Major changes for 2018

For 2018 there has been a reassessment of the security and crowd management plan for the event. This means we have had to make changes to the layout of the show to make sure it is safe for everyone attending. There will be a full perimeter fence around the show site and extra security measures in place throughout the event and Brockwell Park itself. Searching will be in operation on entry, so you are advised to allow extra time to get in. Please be aware of our Terms and Conditions and note that CCTV will be in operation throughout the show.

Read more about safety and security and our decisions around these major changes.

The event is extremely popular with residents and visitors alike, so we encourage people to come early and avoid the busiest peak times from 3 – 5pm and be prepared to queue. We are grateful for your support and patience that will help make sure the Lambeth Country Show is safe and fun for everyone. Last entry in to the event will be 6:30pm on both days.

Please be aware that in order to ease traffic congestion and to allow access by Emergency Service vehicles during the Lambeth Country Show, it is necessary to prohibit parking in certain streets in the vicinity of Brockwell Park as well as implementing certain road closures. These plans also help keep London moving due to the surrounding roads being key routes in and out of central London.
