Lambeth Country Show set for its 50th edition this weekend

The event which started in 1974, and annually attracts more than 120,000 people across the weekend, features a roots and reggae led main stage line up, animal shows, vegetable and flower competition displays, over 200 traders and exhibitors, a LatinoLife big top music experience, sports sessions, funfair and so much more.

Big names set to appear include legendary Jamaican roots reggae singer Luciano and top reggae and dancehall DJ, David “Ram Jam” Rodigan who will be performing on the main stage on Sunday from 5.30pm.

Venetia Reid-Baptiste, a corporate director at Lambeth Council, said: “The Lambeth Country Show is the jewel in our annual events calendar, and much loved by our communities.

“This is the 50th time we have held the country show, and the council has worked really hard to keep it going, to make it a safe event and to keep it as a free event because we know how much it means to our residents. It has been months in the planning.

“You really have to be there in person to appreciate how much it offers. There’s so much to see, and it’s such an inclusive celebration of our diversity.”

The Lambeth Country Show is organised by Lambeth Council in partnership with Brockwell Live. To find out more about the Lambeth Country Show visit and follow

Running the show in partnership with Brockwell Live saves the council £700,000 from the cost of putting on the event, as well as securing more than £100,000 for community investment. Work to restore any impacts on Brockwell Park from the two week pre-summer series of events in Brockwell Park will start as soon as the country show ends, and will be paid for by Brockwell Live.

Opening times are from 1pm to 9pm with last entry at 8.30pm on both days.
