ABOUT THE lambeth country SHOW
The 45th Lambeth Country Show will return to Brockwell Park on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July 2019, boasting a unique line-up that celebrates the very best of the city and countryside.
“With over 100,000 people attending throughout the weekend in 2018, the show is one of the biggest free family festivals in the UK.
You can expect all the attractions of a traditional country show plus much more too. Horticultural shows, sheep and owl displays, home grown vegetable and flower competitions, an abundance of craft and food stalls and our very own on site farm will be there for all to enjoy.
Music always plays a big part of the show too, featuring a mix of dub, Afro-beat, disco, jazz, folk, ska and soul. The Village Green stage will showcase an eclectic mix of local talent playing acoustic folk, choir, soul and pop, along with steel orchestras and samba bands. Our Main Stage hosts an array of local and international talent with funk, soul, disco and well known hits on Saturday. Sunday hosts Roots Day with ska, dub and reggae acts from across the globe. All of this and more with a distinctively urban south London vibe.”

The Church at the Show
Churches from Lambeth and Dulwich will once again collaborate to represent the Church of England at the show. Our aim is that people would 'taste and see', and our hopes for the weekend are:
We hope to create a space for wonder
We hope to create a space in which people are invited to ‘taste and see’
We hope to create a space for questioning
We hope to create a space for prayer
We hope to create a space for joy
We hope to create a safe environment
We hope to create a space for affirmation and acceptance
We hope to be available and accessible to the people of Lambeth/LCS
We hope to build up the body of Christ and to increase our own and other people’s understanding of the breadth of the Church of England
We pray that we will be responsive to the work of the Spirit throughout our planning and preparation
We pray that people will meet God
To that end, we have an exciting mix of events programmed into the weekend, such as a Cafe running throughout, Midday Mass, Messy Church, Ginger Beer and Hymns, Compline and free hand massages.
