Greenwich’s longest running community festival is launching a competition to design the cover of this year’s programme.

Every year more than 5,000 people come along to the Plumstead Make Merry to enjoy a day packed with music, arts and activities which celebrates the history of the area and its community.

The programme will be handed out at this year’s festival on June 7 and is aimed at those aged 11 and under.

Judges will be looking out for originality and creativity so children will be rewarded for letting their imaginations run wild.

The chosen cover will be used on this year’s programme and the winner will receive a framed copy which will be presented at the festival.

For an entry form, please visit where there will be more activities for children. The deadline for submissions is May 4.
