Big Lunch, 5th June 2021

31st May 2021 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

The Big Lunch is your chance to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better.  The big date from 5 June – join in online, on your doorstep, or over the fence.  It’s on.

Its been running since 2009;  The Big Lunch is the UK’s annual get-together for neighbours and its grown ten-fold since then, each year getting bigger and better as millions of people take to their streets, gardens and neighbourhoods to join in for a few hours of community, friendship, and fun.

The Big Lunch connects people and encourages friendlier, safer neighbourhoods where people start to share more – from conversations and ideas, to skills and resources, and, for some, it ignites a passion for doing more good things where they live. It’s the first weekend in June each year, pop it in your diary and find out more.
