Lambeth Country Show

Reggae, sunshine, sheep shearing and strong cider; Brixton is gearing itself for the Lambeth Country Show, which takes place in Brockwell Park today and tomorrow.

Dozens of stall holders are already at the Herne Hill site setting up trestle tables, whole others have risen early to make the final changes to their vegetable sculptures or flower arrangements.
