Visit Brockwell Park for the Lambeth Country Show

BPCP logoThe Lambeth Country Show celebrates its 40th anniversary on the weekend of Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th July 2014 at Brockwell Park.

The Show is organised by Lambeth Council and you can find out all about it at their dedicated website.

For those of you who want to see a lot more of wonderful Brockwell Park this weekend, we recommend the following attractions:

Wildflower Slope1. Brockwell Park Lido Wildflower Slope. Take inspiration from the Brockwell Park Lido wildflower slope – formerly an unused gravel bank – which has now been populated with wonderful wildflowers by local volunteers. Then come and find Brockwell Park Community Partners stall in Charities West Area, pitch no ZW18, where you can buy low cost wildflower seed to create your own poppy haven.

 

Brockwell Hall rear2. Brockwell Hall. The grade II* listed centrepiece of Brockwell Park was built over 200 years ago as the country house of glass maker John Blades. Today it houses a bust of Thomas Lynn Bristowe MP who put Brockwell Park in to public ownership on 6th June 1892 and has inspired innumerable lives ever since.

The Hall also houses Brockwell Park Cafe which serves refreshments and particularly good ice cream.

Clocktower 23. Brockwell Park Clocktower.

Just past the Hall is the Park’s historic Clocktower, installed in 1897. It was famous for not working for the last two decades – until restored to its former glory by a local community fundraising campaign earlier in 2014. Listen closely and you’ll hear it tick!

 

We hope you have a great time this weekend in Brockwell Park.
