- The 2019 festival will take place on Saturday 8th June, from 12 noon to 6pm on Plumstead Common, (London, SE18).
The Plumstead Make Merry is the longest-running community festival in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Contrary to popular belief, the festival is not run by the council, and the council do not fund the infrastructure of the event. It is run entirely by volunteers who are passionate about the local area, and funded through the generosity our supporters and dedicated fundraising efforts.
Each year, thousands of people come along to enjoy a packed day of music, arts and activities that celebrate the history of the area and its diverse community. With up to 90 different stalls from local groups and businesses, there is plenty on offer including food and activities for all the family. So, come and join us on Plumstead Common.
If you want to run a stall, perform, or be one of our valued stewards please go to the ‘Get Involved’ section. Details can also be found there on how to help us with our fundraising through sponsorship and donations.
