Lambeth Country Show celebrates 50 years of first class music entertainment

An unmissable line-up full of jazz beats, Cuban mixes, Afrobeats and Reggae is set for a very special community festival this June.

The Lambeth Country Show is a free annual Community event that has been managed by Lambeth council since 1974.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, from June 8 to 9, the Lambeth Country Show will transform Brockwell Park in Dulwich Road, into a hub of community activity with everything from flower and fruit displays to farmyard animals and jousting.

The weekend hosts more than 200 traders and exhibitors including street food from around the world, local crafts, health and wellbeing and much more.

A rich heritage of local charities and community groups also have a presence at the show and help celebrate the diversity that Lambeth has to offer.

Half of the park will be devoted to musical entertainment with a line-up of artists carefully selected by Culture Promotions.

Culture Promotions has been producing the main stage line up for almost 20 years and is sure to create an eclectic and exciting mix of music for the Saturday and a pure roots cultural reggae line up for Roots Day on the Sunday. 

Saturday, June 8, will feature Gnawa Blues All Stars, blending blues, jazz, reggae and afrobeats, the versatile Brixton Chamber Orchestra and Children of Zeus formed of two of Manchester’s most respected artists Konny Kon and Tyler Daley.

With just a short break in-between to catch our breath, the festival’s second day jumps straight into Roots Rock Reggae all afternoon in a celebratory Roots Day.

Acts include Top Cats featuring Youth Sayers, Female Roll Call with the GeeWhiz Band , David ‘ Ram Jam’ Rodigan and  Luciano – live and direct from Jamaica.

With an estimated 120,000 people attending throughout the weekend, the show is one of the biggest free family festivals in the UK.
