The 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 in 2017, the show is one of the biggest public events in the UK.

You can expect all the attractions of a traditional country show plus much more. Horticultural shows, sheep dog & owl displays, home grown vegetable and flower competitions, an abundance of craft & food stalls and a very own on site farm will be there for all to enjoy. All this will be on offer and more with a distinctively urban south London vibe.

Music always plays a big part to the show too featuring a mix of dub, afro-beat, disco, folk, ska and soul. Sunday will welcome back Roots Reggae Day to the Main Stage and our Village Green stage will showcase an eclectic mix of local talent playing acoustic folk, soul and pop, along with steel orchestras and samba bands.

Now in its 44th year, the show is organised by EventLambeth and funded by Lambeth Council. This year’s show was supported using public funding by Arts Council England (ACE).
