An annual free event in Brockwell Park, south London.

Description: What an occasion... the Lambeth Country Show, an annual free event in Brockwell Park, south London.
With variety a plenty...you just might find performing vultures, racing terriers, prize vegetables and bonsai trees while listening to ska, roots reggae and a brass band...or indeed Radio 4!
Amomgst other things, Lambeth Country Fair gives urban kids the chance to interact with animals and learn a little about the countryside.
So why not pay it a visit - the month of July is the time, usually the 17th and 18th.
The park was designed by JJ Sexby who also designed Ruskin Park. It opened in 1892 when at the ceremony TL Bristowe, MP for Norwood, collapsed and died here.
