October Plenty 2020 has happened!

Our October Plenty Festival took place on Sunday October 25th 2020 – online.
It was preceded by a week of amazing activities.

Our ‘live’ October Plenty was a raucous jamboree, celebrating harvest and the transition of the seasons. Our audience’s ability to bring their voice to the play is the key element on the day and this applies to our ‘Virtual Plenty’ in just the same way, in fact it is even more important.

Lift up your hearts, your voices and feet!

The Corn Queene

Over 20 years ago, fired with enthusiasm for amazing autumn festivies that people celebrated world wide and influenced by the organisation Common Ground, whose creation of Apple Day has inspired so many, I gathered with local friends and members of the Lions part and we launched October Plenty. At the heart of it was the iconic Corn Queene. Since then, in collaboration with Roots and Shoots, Lambeth, through David Perkins and Sarah Wilson, she has become an annual wonder. This, her 'Natural History' written by David, offers you all her qualities: enjoy!
