Local anger about proposed Brockwell Park festivals

Proposals for two three-day festivals in Brockwell Park this year with up to 40,000 people a day, with protracted set-up and build down times have generated an unprecedented wave of protest from local communities and park groups.

Field Day and LoveBox have both submitted plans for three day ticketed festivals in the park, Field Day in early June, LoveBox in July and back-to-back with the Lambeth Country Show. This would add up to eight major event days in the park at a time when the park is at its busiest and families who do not go away during the summer holidays need it most.
