Arts Council England (National Lottery Project Grant)
National Lottery Project Grants is Arts Council England‘s open access programme for arts, libraries and museums projects. The fund supports thousands of individual artists, community and cultural organisations around the country every year and we’re grateful to part of the recent round of funding.
Brockwell Live is a collective of independent festivals that take place in Brockwell Park from 26 May – 4 June 2023. The series covers a broad range of music and culture in one of London’s most beloved and historic parks.
The Lambeth Country Show is now part of the Brockwell Live family – taking place on the 3rd weekend of events on 10 and 11 June. This partnership allows us to share infrastructure, secure the future of the event and guarantee entry stays free for all to enjoy.
LatinoLife brings the Latin party to Brixton and the Lambeth Country Show. Expect the unique programme of high quality and diverse Latin artists that LatinoLife is known for, taking you on a journey through salsa, reggaetón, samba, jazz, fusion, folk, funk, hip-hop and lots of dance – culminating in a party you won’t want to leave.
LatinoLife is the UK’s leading Latin media, events and music company. In 2022 it became the first Latin-run organisation to be awarded NPO status – National Portfolio Organisation – joining the likes of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal Opera House, Sadler’s Wells and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as one of the Government’s ‘esteemed cultural institutions’ recognised for artistic excellence.
Based in Brixton, our friends at Grooveschool offer a range of music workshops that allow access to the basics of music technology and DJ skills – regardless of age, ability or background. Students gain skills and confidence in handling the building blocks of modern music technology, giving participants the satisfaction of creating a tangible end product, be it a loop, file or entire performance.
For the very first time, Grooveschool will be hosting a stage showcasing the talents of their students, local DJs and producers. A full line up will be announced soon.
Lambeth Horticultural Society
The Lambeth Horticultural Society (LHS) is for local people who are keen to give gardening and horticulture a go, or who’d like to learn more and meet other gardeners. You don’t need a garden or an allotment, and you don’t have to live in Lambeth! They are all volunteers and want to help as many people as possible to share their love of growing herbs, fruit, veg, flowers, shrubs and trees – from the allotment to the balcony.
The Lambeth Flower Show is organised in partnership with LHS each year and we could not do it without the knowledge, skills and love for horticulture they provide.

Compliments of the House
Complements Of The House is a Brixton-based grassroots food redistribution charity that collects fresh surplus cooked food and gives it to those in need for free, reimagining food waste as a vital resource to sustainably meet the needs of those most vulnerable in the local community. Having partnered with Brockwell Live for their collective of independent festivals this summer, they will be at each festival collecting surplus food on the day that will then be redistributed and delivered to those who need it most in the local community for free.
