Not Lost The Plot – The story of the Queens Road Allotments

The Friends of Queens Road Allotments was one of the first groups in the UK to receive a  Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) All Our Stories grant in November 2012.

Our project is called” Not Lost the Plot”, and this film is one part of our year long research project. It includes the stories of many of the allotment users and their memories of the past.

Being privately owned the plot owners are free to use their plots for all sorts of unconventional activities from bee keeping to vintage car renovation as well as growing fruit and vegetables.

The site is a quirky oasis in the middle of the busy residential area of Clarendon Park and is cherished and loved by the locals that use it.

The film was completed in October 2013 and was filmed by Bill Newsinger.

Short post on the Dogwoof Pop Up Cinema website from a previous Docfilm Festival:

The Dochead:

John Coster (Dogwoof Ambassador) Likes Docs. So he screened lots of them at his local cinema. Along with some Q&As, filmmakers and special previews thrown in for good measure.


He had too many films and not enough space so did a clever thing. He whacked them all on at the same time on different walls and gave his audience members headphones. Voila silent cinema…
