Scenes from our favourite annual Brixton event
(18th-19th July 2009, photos by urban75)
We love the Lambeth Country Show - a two day festival of sheep shearing owls, weird vegetable creatures, reggae, ska and Chucklehead cider.
Here's some photos from the 2009 show:
The contestants in the Second Unofficial Alternative Vegetable Competition.
Lambeth Question Time.
Not entirely sure what this lot are doing here....

The Original Unofficial Alternative Vegetable Animal competition.
The judging takes place The rules are strict: only cocktail sticks may be used to stick the vegetable/fruit bits together. This one is of Trotsky, complete with carrot 'icepick.'
Ships on the ocean.
Each grape was individually affixed to the ship by a cocktail stick. Now, that's dedication.
Anxious entrants and observers.
The winner is declared and the first prize dished out.
The winner! A Saturn V rocket and two astronauts on the Moon. The astronauts are cunningly made from mushrooms.
On the Village Green stage.
The magnificence of the Chucklehead Cider stand.
