  • Cultivate: a hub of creativity, with theatre, dance, art, and mini-courses (including rag weaving, clay modelling and gamelan). Our friends at Brixton Blog will also be on hand, offering media and journalism workshops.
  • Activate: the place for sport and physical activity. Training, support and demonstrations of everything from basketball to zumba.
  • Flower Zone: as well as the expected bouquets, you'll also find the ever-popular vegetable competitions (who's got the biggest marrow?), and the vegetable character competition (hoping for a return of Jarvis).
  • Farm Zone: for all your livestock-petting needs, plus sheep-shearing demonstrations, bee hives and blacksmiths.
  • Funfair: rides!
  • Picnic Area: a quiet spot to enjoy some grub from any of the copious street food options dotted about the show. Or bring your own.
  • Main Stage: international music, all day long, featuring musicians from across the borough.
  • Main Arena: jousting, racing camels, birds of prey, and more.
  • Village Green: another music area, with mellow sounds.

Our tip: don't plan or read too much about it — just show up, explore and enjoy.

Lambeth Country Show takes place 20-21 July in Brockwell Park. Entrance and most attractions are free.
