Thousands of people headed down to Brockwell Park for a sunny Lambeth Country Show this weekend.

More than 160,000 people are estimated to have turned up to south London’s biggest free festival across the weekend of July 18 and 19.

The event, which was themed the Festival of Love for its 41st year, features everything from funk soul bands to a dog and duck show.

Other highlights included the Essex Dog Display team running their dogs through an impressive range of stunts and tricks and a brilliant performance from the Endurance Steel Orchestra.

Regular favourites such as the wonderfully weird vegetable competition and meeting the animals from Vauxhall City Farm were also on hand, as was the ever-popular Chucklehead Cider.

Cllr Jane Edbrooke, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said: “It was a fantastic weekend with so much to see and do. Everything from a competitive sheep show in one corner to Misty in Roots the British roots reggae group playing in another.

“The Lambeth Country Show always gives the people of this borough so much variety, entertainment and fun – it really is a chance for everyone to come together and celebrate our fantastic community.”
