Star Councils 2023

Council support, to encourage participation in The Big Lunch and help events run smoothly, remains as important as ever.

We are delighted to have worked with so many authorities, of all levels, across the UK this year and to recognise them with a list of Star Councils 2023.

In 2022, we recognised those supporting The Big Jubilee Lunch with this list of Platinum Councils.
