Lambeth Country Show 2011 [part one]
One of London's finest free events!
(Saturday 17th July 2010, photos by urban75)
Now in its 35th year, the Lambeth Country Show is easily one of our favourite festivals of the year.
With over 300 exhibitors and traders, plus bands, sheep shearing, vegetable animals, flowers, farm animals, hooting owls, ducks and more, it's a great couple of days out.
Here's some photos from Saturday:
Despite a horrible start to the Saturday, the sun finally broke through the rain clouds.

West Norwood fire firefighters scaled their ladders hundreds of times to climb the equivalent of Mount Everest.
The firemen collectively climbed a total of 8,848 metres to raise money for a cancer charity in tribute to a colleague who is currently battling the disease.
