How is money spent to produce the show?

The Lambeth Country Show remained free in 2018 for all to enjoy. The cost of producing a show of this scale is increasing each year for various reasons such as health & safety, security, crowd management and medical cover. We have published a full budget to demonstrate how public money is spent on the show.

Total expenditure in 2018 was £999,840. Organisers secured income from concession sales and small sponsorship and advertising packages to the value of £372,590. This income is offset against the total expenditure and Council budget is assigned each year to pay for the shortfall. The total cost to the Council in 2018 was £627,250.
