Enjoy a Big Lunch with The Great Get Together! #TheBiglunch


Get together with your neighbours for a weekend celebrating community, commonality and connections
17-18 JUNE 2017


The Big Lunch is a simple idea from the Eden Project: that as many people as possible across the UK have lunch with their neighbours annually on a Sunday in June in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.

This year The Big Lunch, held on Sunday 18 June, forms part of The Great Get-Together weekend: a partnership with the Jo Cox Foundation aiming to get communities to come together to celebrate connections and commonality.

Since starting in 2009, thousands of Big Lunches have taken place in all types of communities, with millions of people taking to their streets, gardens and community spaces for lunch.

A Big Lunch can be anything from a simple get-together with neighbours in your backyard to a full-blown community event in a street closed to cars for the day.

Often a Big Lunch starts with a small group of friends and neighbours with an idea to get people together on one day in the year (it doesn’t have to be on the first Sunday in June).

With a bit of door knocking, word of mouth and a few flyers, the ‘founding allies’ can get it to snowball into a proper plan involving the whole neighbourhood.

For more information visit The Great Get Together website.
