Templant Will Be Keeping the Power Running at Lambeth
It is our pleasure to once again work with Lambeth Council to power one of London’s longest-running events: the Lambeth Country Show.
With the nights drawing in, businesses and households are preparing for the winter to come. So what better time to cheer ourselves up by looking a little further ahead to 2019 in anticipation of one of the South East’s premier free weekend festivals?
Proud to take part
The Lambeth Country Show is a major event, and the organisers knew that they needed generator hire specialists that they could count on. Needless to say, we were delighted to be able to provide generator hire services to Lambeth Council for 2019’s show. This is the 45th show in the event’s history, and we have been delivering generators for hire each year since 2013.
The show will take place on 20-21st July at Brockwell Park, to the south of London between Brixton and Dulwich Village. Previous events were attended by many local residents; and provided plenty of fun and excitement for the community. It’s a privilege to be able to ensure that the upcoming edition of the event will run just as smoothly.
About the show
The Lambeth Show is one of the biggest weekend events in the entire country, and typically attracts around 100,000 visitors. It is arranged by EventLambeth and enjoys the enthusiastic support of Lambeth Council, which goes some way to explaining its continued strength and success.
The full list of events and acts will be announced over the coming months, but broadly speaking, you can expect the usual attractions that are part and parcel of a traditional country show, and plenty more besides.
The “country” part will encompass the event’s very own on-site farm, and a range of horticultural shows, along with owl displays, the ever-popular flower and vegetable competitions, in which locals can show off their skills, and no end of food and craft stalls.
A major part of the show, however, is about the music. There is certain to be something to suit every taste, and the stage always boasts a wealth of local talent that showcases South London’s cultural diversity. Whether you are in to disco, folk, dub, Afro-beat, soul or ska, you’ll hear it at the Lambeth Country Show.
The service we will provide
So, how are we set to help ensure the 2019 show goes off without a hitch? We submitted a tender to Lambeth Council, and were up against some of our most highly regarded competitors. We provided quotations, risk assessments, site plans, and contingency plans. This was all carefully assessed by the team at the council before they chose us as their preferred supplier for the seventh consecutive year.
We agreed to supply all of the temporary power generators, fuel tanks and diesel for the show. We will provide 35 generators and tanks in total, and will also take care of the transport of this equipment to and from the event. We always deliver a service that is tailored to suit the needs of each client, and we worked closely with Lambeth Council to identify what their exact requirements for the upcoming event would be. The result? A temporary power supply that is guaranteed to last the whole weekend!
If you were lucky enough to be in attendance last year, you will need no convincing, but in case you missed it, there really was a little bit of everything. The diverse music acts on offer included a saxophone quartet, a uke choir, African drummers, the great soul voice of Janet Kay and the unforgettable singer songwriter Amy Weir. Perhaps the most memorable act of all, though, was the emotionally charged tribute to Amy Winehouse, who attended an art school in Selhurst, just down the road, and was taken from us far too soon.
Aside from the music, other entertainment included a motorcycle display team, Morris dancers, crazy golf and a chance to meet the stars from Surrey County Cricket Club. There really was something for everyone to enjoy.
At Templant, we are already looking forward to playing our part in making the 2019 Lambeth Show the best yet. Make sure you get along in July, but if you want to get more deeply involved, whether it is by entering one of the contests or volunteering to help out, now is the perfect time to get in touch with the organisers via the Lambeth Show website. We can’t wait to see you there!
