This year the Lambeth Country Show is celebrating its landmark 40th birthday. The show is a much loved jewel in London’s cultural calendar and this year will be a special birthday extravaganza.

Performance at Lambeth Country Show

There will be some surprises in store as the show takes you through the decades: from the 70s, to the 80s, through the 90s and into the noughties. We want you all to come along in fancy dress too! So make sure you keep your diary free on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 July from 11am to 7pm.

Not only will there be birthday celebrations, you’ll also be treated to top-quality performers on the music stages, sheep shearing in the farm zone, horse jousting in the main arena, flower and garden displays, puppet making classes and much more. There really is something for everyone.

We’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all of the Country Show’s loyal supporters over the last 40 years.

    Hi, was wondering if it’s still possible to buy one of those cloth bags you were selling at this years country show? The ones with Lambeth Country Show 40th Birthday printed on?
