This traditional show is run by Lambeth Horticultural Society who run the very popular flower show at The Country Show every July. If you have some lovely daffodils or tulips why not enter the competition – its 15p per competition category with over 60 categories to choose from! If gardening is not your skill how about baking, jam making or crafts?
Now is the time to start thinking about your day out to this year’s Country Show 12noon to 8pm over the weekend 21st & 22nd July at Brockwell Park SE24 . Bring friends & family too.
The Main stage & Village Green host a wide range of musicians– something for everyone. And there are numerous other activities , entertainments, animals, food & drink and of course show piece entertainments at the Arena.

The Country Show changes a bit ever year. This year safety measures include searches at the 2 entry points (Herne Hill & Lido) so the show area has to be fenced within the park. Come early to avoid queues. Last entry 6.30pm. Entry remains free and unticketed.
To get to the Country Show please walk, cycle or travel by public transport ( 68 or 196 bus from West Norwood) . The only parking is for Blue Badge holders who apply in advance.
How about having a go at your own “vegetable character” in the Flower tent. Apply by Thursday 14th July. And there is a £100 prize for best “Rio Gold All Stars” scarecrow and £100 first prize in the Recycled Garden planting competition.
New this year is the cycle Floral Ride on Sunday from Streatham or Waterloo.
