The Big Lunch neighbourhood get-together
- Date: Sunday 2 June 2019
- Where: Your own neighbourhood!
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 Sunday in June in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
What is a Big Lunch?
A Big Lunch can be anything from a small gathering in a garden, park or driveway, to a larger party with trestle tables down the middle of your street. The official Big Lunch date isn't practical for every community so you can run one at any time you fancy.
Why host a Big Lunch?
The idea is that by starting simple, all sorts of friendships, ideas and projects can come out of a Big Lunch. It gets people together and talking — and with a few inspired folk, it can lead to people doing more within their community, and tackling the issues that matter to them most.
