Summer has finally arrived and it is time to enjoy some of the outside delights of the Island. On a sleepy Sunday morning, I made my way to Mudchute Park & Farm for the Mudchute Agricultural Show 2019.
The show takes place over the weekend and allows city dwellers to enjoy some of the delights of country life.
Rare breed sheep from London’s City Farms are shown in livestock shows,
with categories such as best young handlers, primitive sheep and best lambs.
Craft creators, wood workers and dry stone wall makers are demonstrating their crafts
and local market stall holders are selling their creations.
Visitors are treated to a large number of attractions and can enjoy a stroll around the Park & Farm . The Mudchute Agricultural Show is fast becoming one of the main highlights of the Island events year.
Mudchute Park & Farm is one of the largest inner City Farms in Europe with a wonderful collection of British rare breeds and currently home to over 100 animals and fowl. Set in 32 acres of countryside in the heart of East London, Mudchute is a community charity, with a working farm, stables and a wide range of education activities.
Mudchute Agricultural Show 2019 takes place on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th of June between 11am – 4pm
Lower Field, Mudchute Park and Farm, Isle of Dogs ,London E14 3HP
Entry is Free

I missed it this year. I am sure it was great but I did feel for the animals in such heat.
Fortunately it was not too hot and the animals were kept in the shade in tents. It was a great event which hopefully will be on next year.
