Lambeth Country Show here to stay but fireworks no longer affordable

Lambeth council has committed to keeping the hugely popular Lambeth Country Show, but massive budget cuts mean the annual fireworks display will not go ahead.

Lambeth’s funding has been cut in half by central government cuts, meaning the council must carefully prioritise how it spends its money.

The Country Show, held every summer in Brockwell Park, attracted 160,000 people last month and included live music, a fun fair, main arena shows such as horse jousting and dog display teams, bars, food stalls, flower displays, a farmers’ market and animals of all shapes and sizes.  It is free to attend.

The November fireworks event is also popular but the council had to introduce charges last year in an attempt to keep costs manageable.
