Huge crowds attended the free Lambeth Country Show over the weekend, with the warmer weather proving a real treat for those attending south London’s biggest festival.
Organised by Lambeth Council and returning for its 42 year on July 16 and July 17 Lambeth Country Show in Brockwell Park boasted a unique line-up that celebrated the very best of the city and countryside.
Cllr Lib Peck, Lambeth council leader, said: “I’m delighted that the Lambeth Country Show has been such a success this year. We have worked hard to keep it as a free entry event in the face of serious cuts to our budgets.
“That decision has been amply justified this weekend by the huge turnout, all the great feedback I’ve received and because of how much this event means to our whole community.”
An estimated 95,000 people were at the country show on Saturday, with 80,000 attending on Sunday.
With activities and events spread across 10 different areas the show had something for everyone including sheep shows, owls, live reggae, a city farm, jerk chicken stalls, cycle safety, jousting, health checks, a fun fair, kids sports and so much more.
Cllr Peck said: “The sheer range of options at the country show speaks to the diversity and creativity of our community.
“It’s a real tribute to the council and our events team that it all came together in such a colourful and exciting celebration of Lambeth.”
