The Big Lunch neighbourhood get-together
The Big Lunch is the UK's biggest annual get-together for neighbours. It's a simple idea from the Eden Project: that as many people as possible across the UK have lunch with their neighbours annually on a weekend in June in a simple act of community, friendship and fun. And whilst this year might look a little different, there are more reasons than ever before to come together with your community however you can.
What is a Big Lunch?
The Big Lunch is your chance to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better. The big date for this year is 5-6 June 2021, and while it might be a little different, there are more reasons than ever to get together for community, friendship and fun.
Why host a Big Lunch?
Getting together and sharing a bite to eat over a natter is fun, it’s as simple as that. We’ve also seen that great things happen when people get together; in 2020, 3.3 million new friendships were formed because of The Big Lunch, and a whopping 85% say that the Big Lunch helped them create a stronger sense of community spirit.
