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 are also jousting, sheep herding and birds of prey displays (irresistible for kids of all ages) plus an on-site urban farm.
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.
The Main Stage plays well-known hits and some funk, soul and disco on Saturday, while Sunday is Roots Day with local and international ska, dub and reggae acts.
The show has grown much bigger but still remains free. Download the free Woov app to help you get around.To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
