The Lambeth Country Show

The yearly Lambeth Country show makes us very, very happy. It’s a peculiar event, bringing all the traditions of a village fair to the city, and we love it. Yes, the music line-up is great (the little folk stage is a good place to hang out), but what really makes it special are the quirkier country-style offerings. Sheep shearing, dog display teams, blacksmithing, jousting, and falcons all jostle for your attention. Plus there are classes in sports, dancing, bee-keeping and crafts as well as a 60m zip wire, and – our favourites – the vegetable sculpting and scarecrow competitions. It’s a real opportunity for city kids to get a taste (and smell) of life outside the capital. It’s free, but donate hard to keep it free in the future. SE24. Free. Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 12pm-8pm. More here
