Things to do this weekend

Whitecross Street Festival – Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 July – all day event – Whitecross Street Market, EC1Y 8JL.  This extraordinary event sees Whitecross Street transformed into a giant canvas featuring artworks by both established and emerging contemporary urban artists.  Using the very British concept of an old fashioned street party, ‘Whitecross Street Party’ features a range of high quality theatre, dance and music, family events and arts workshops and activities. There will be plenty of chances for you to get creative and make your own mark creating work for the exhibition and street party through a series of workshops and classes.

Lambeth Country Show – Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 July – 11.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. – Brockwell Park, SE24 0PA – Free 

Now in its 39th year and organised by Lambeth Council, the show has all the attractions of a traditional country fair such as home grown vegetables, jams and chutneys. horticultural shows along with sheep dog and owl displays happen throughout the weekend, but with a distinctly urban South London vibe. In 2012, the show attracted more than 150,000 people, drawn to the truly eclectic mix of free entertainment and activities for all ages. This year sees the show split into nine zones, featuring music, art, theatre, sport and games, food, animals, horticulture and much more. Horses, pigs, falcons and ferrets grace the Main Arena for two days this year bringing the countryside to Lambeth! Expect some spectacular performances throughout the weekend.
