The large posters promised a festive “Funland” in the heart of Brixton, but there was a pretty austere offering on show at the ‘Bensons Winter Funland’ in Windrush Square tonight.

Slung into a corner of the square, the attraction comprised of just three small rides, a Sizzlers burger bar and a handful of food stalls.

There wasn’t a single person on any of the rides when I was there at 5.30pm, but one of the workers assured me that it was busier earlier.
