Posted June 8, 2018

So many things to see, So much to experience.  For every age and taste, tons of events all year round will keep your agenda busy. This is London, a lively and vibrant city that will never let you down

If you happen to be in the capital on summertime, you cannot miss at least one of the many outdoor festivals held all over the city. Don’t worry if you are on a budget! The beauty of London is that you can experience plenty of activities for free.

On Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 July 2018, the 44th Lambeth Country Show at Brockwell Park, will be back for its 2nd edition. Over 150.000 people attended in 2017, making this show one of the biggest free festival in the UK (yes, in the UK!!!) Moreover, it’s the highest certified public event in the UK for policies and efforts on reducing the impact on the environment so you couldn’t get any greener than this festival!

Vegetable sculptures and flowers competition and the children’s funfair are only a few examples of the many attractions to expect from a traditional country fair. Worldwide cuisine as much as local food from the farm on-site, will keep your belly full and happy.  For the thirsty ones, plenty of bars across the different zones will be offering craft beer, ale, wine, cider, cocktails and much more.

And what would a festival be without music? Summery sounds such as Dub, disco, jazz, soul, Afro-beat & ska (you’re in for a treat!).

The highlight will surely be the Roots Reggae day on Sunday, hosting also local talents playing acoustic folk, soul and pop, alongside steel orchestras and samba bands (visit the festival webpage for the full Line up).

Opening hours are between 12:30 and 8pm on both days. Sun will hopefully be shining so let’s enjoy it!
