Gearing up for the 41st Lambeth Country Show!

The countdown is nearly over – the Lambeth Country Show returns to Brockwell Park next Saturday and Sunday (18 and 19 July, 12 to 8pm), and we can’t wait. We’re excited about the musical acts, we’re excited about the animals, we’re excited about the whole weekend, and hope you are too!

If you are coming down here are a few things to remember:

Use public transport to get to the Show We’ve scrapped parking facilities this year (although disabled parking is still available for Blue Badge holders ) and as usual, there will be parking suspensions on surrounding roads. So, if you’re not within walking distance of the park, its best to jump on a bus, tube or train or cycle to the park. We have two large, secure cycle parks so you can leave your bikes whilst you enjoy the show. Use TfL’s Journey Planner to find your best route to Brockwell Park.

Exclusive information only at the show For the only place to find most up-to-date line ups, timings and information about the show, as well as a map showing where everything is happening on the day, you can grab one of our A-Z Festival guides, for a suggested donation of just £1. You can get one at the park gates or from information points and Show Ambassadors across the park. Entry remains free this year, but the show couldn’t survive without your support and that of local people and visitors who donate towards the running costs of the show each year.

Help make the show greener This year we are doing all we can to keep the show as environmentally as possible. How can you help us? Throw your rubbish away in the correct bins; reuse your water cups at the bars and refill your water bottles at the available drinking taps; bring a reusable shopping bag. You can also get tips on how to live an environmentally friendly lifestyle at our brand new Eco-zone.

A new way to navigate the show Olive Morris; Charlie Chaplin; Van Gogh? What do they have in common? All have been famous residents of Lambeth at some point and you will see street names celebrating them and others at the show. There are eight ‘street names’ in all to look out for!

Enjoy yourself but keep your feet on the ground We operate a zero tolerance policy on drugs and ‘legal highs’ and anyone caught using them at the show with be escorted out of the park by security and risks being arrested.
