This is very worrying, if true:
I've seen this posted in various places online but nothing from them directly, I hope it's not true although I don't know why anyone would make it up.
last chucklehead tweet from 19/7
I've written to them. There's talk of a crowdfunder if the story is true. They're a tiny business that has struggled to keep up up with Lambeth's ballooning rents at the show.
They've confirmed it. Such a terrible thing to happen to a small family firm
Chucklehead Cider stall robbed at Lambeth Country Show
Damn. That's got to be a kick in the teeth.
With that big wall in place surrounded by security, it's hard to blow away the whiff of an inside job.
I don't know if i'd (as a business) ever come back to the show after all the hefty prices raises and now this.
Jeez that's shit.
It must have been as they were going, after the fence was down ?
That's so terrible. I hope they had insurance.
They confirm the theft on their FB page...
All that security ....
So much for the great lambeth wall of security.
Sounds like it was Saturday night or Sunday morning if just Saturday's takings are gone.
The Fence probably won't be down for a few days yet - Must have been over 300 "Security" on site.
Any news about the crowd funder? Would like to chip in.
They posted the day before the show:
Bleak news.....that wall tho' ....was there any cctv on site ?
I've just written this to them:
(Although I understand that they may not want a crowdfunder, at least the offer is there)
Thanks for that. Feel really bad for them.
I'm gutted. To support them being there on Saturday I bought two bottles of cider.
So Lambeths security is rubbish.
Sorry I saw tattooed security outside the bigger beer tents.
So what happened to the smaller business like Chucklehead?
I didn't see any of the security around that bit of the fair.
I've set up a crowdfunder. Please give what you can: Help raise £500 to help the Chucklehead Cider farm after their takings were stolen at the Lambeth Country Show
Well, it's hit 28% of the target already so it's up and running. Please give what you can!
Gutted for them, Chucklehead is the first thing we go to before anything else. We put money aside for it ffs.
The crowdfunder has reached 84% already - with luck I can extend it, but even then it won't even reach a fraction of what they've lost.

Does not insurance take care of such things? Let The Man pay!
I've heard absolutely nothing to suggest that 'The Man' is going to pay and it certainly won't help this crowdfunder if you start suggesting that 'he' is - unless you actually know something that the people at Chucklehead haven't told me themselves.
It would be nice to know. If there was no insurance for such an occasion I'd be happy to donate.
I sympathise with Chucklehead, that's an awful thing to happen. And anybody that is running a business at festivals can and should have insurance in place for such a thing.
If they do have insurance in place (which any sensible business will) and insurer isn't going to pay out then that's' generally because they haven't taken the precautions that are conditional to their policy. Though sometimes it can be the insurers just being arseholes.
I doubt they will have had the time yet to place a claim and have the admin done yet so a fundraiser seems a bit premature. If they don't have insurance then one might ask why not.
That said, if they get fucked over by their insurer then the crowdfunder is a great thing.
