The vibe is more of a village fair than festival down at this family-orientated South London event. Get your farmer fix at the horticultural shows or the home-grown vegetable and flower competitions, or browse the craft and food stalls. There will also be diggers, birds of prey displays and an urban farm with a ‘Cuddle Corner’ (irresistible for kids of all ages).
If it’s music you’re after, you’re bound to find something you like; head to the Village Green Stage for a mix of genres including local steel and samba bands, choir, acoustic folk, soul and pop. Headlined by BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year, Ríoghnach Connolly & Honeyfeet, the Main Stage plays well-known hits and some funk, soul and disco on Saturday, while Sunday is led by Ceilidh Tree to really get those toes tapping.
There are several new areas for 2023 including the Grooveschool Stage, the LatinoLife Stage and the Original Wall of Death.
