Held annually ever since the 1970s The Plumstead Make Merry is the longest-running community festival in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Run entirely by volunteers, each year over 5000 people come along to enjoy a packed day of music, arts and activities that celebrate the history of the area and its diverse community.
The Plumstead Make Merry festival takes place on the Plumstead Common in South East London (SE18) with over 80 stalls, a bandstand for music and dance performances and the Acoustic Café to kick back and chill.
In 2016 the event will be held on Saturday the 11th June, starting at noon.
