Lambeth Country Show Line-Up Announced

The line-up for this year’s 50th anniversary Lambeth Country Show, the best free community festival in London, has been announced.

And will feature a host of big names including legendary Jamaican roots reggae singer Luciano and top reggae and dancehall DJ, David “Ram Jam” Rodigan.

Held in Brockwell Park between Brixton and Herne Hill, the Country Show will run over the weekend of June 8 and June 9. This summer’s show will maintain its distinctive celebration, highlighting the best of both the city and the countryside.

Cllr Donatus Anyanwu, Cabinet Member for Stronger Communities, Leisure and Sports, said: “The Lambeth Country Show is a summer highlight for our borough and our communities, so I’m delighted that there is such a strong line-up for this year’s 50th anniversary edition. We have worked hard to keep this as a free community event, despite the very tough financial times we face, because the Lambeth Country Show is a brilliant opportunity for our communities to come together for a safe, inclusive and most of all a fun time.”

The annual event, held by Lambeth Council since 1974, combines the best of the city and the countryside, with live music, sheep shearing, vegetable sculpture competitions, community stands and so much more. Over 100,000 people attended over the weekend in June 2023. The Lambeth Country Show is organised by Lambeth Council, in partnership with Brockwell Live.
