Badge Queen of Plumstead – The Revival of a Tradition
Art Plumstead are delighted to be involved in the extremely worthwhile cause of bringing back to Plumstead its very own Badge Queen. Although the tradition began in Victorian times, it was not until after the First World War and through the 1920s that Badge Royalty reached its peak and even rivalled the Pearly King & Queen tradition in popularity. To find out more please click here.
The third Plumstravaganza will take place from Monday 27th August (Bank Holiday Monday) until Sunday 9th September 2018. Although planning is at a very early stage, details of what took place last year can be found on the Plumstravaganza website by following this link.
Please Note: – We are always interested in hearing from people/businesses, that run events/clubs in Plumstead throughout the year or who wish to stage a one off event during Plumstravaganza. Don’t be shy, get in touch.
