2022 was a BIG Big Lunch! We celebrated the Jubilee and a whopping 17.2 million of you took part! Here's just a small selection of some of our favourite Big Lunch and Big Jubilee Lunch moments from each of the nations!

In Llandrindod, Wales, the whole street got involved with a Big Lunch, check out the view from above!


And the party spirit was very much in top-gear, look at some of the smiling faces enjoying all the day had to offer!








And the sun shined in the north, with Scotland enjoying some gorgeous weather across the weekend! With fresh air and sun a-plenty, check out some of the festivities enjoyed by some of the communities in Starbank Park and Torry.

The Irish truly partied in style! We tried our very best to keep up with them… look at the merriments had by all across Ardcarn, Downpatrick, Killyleagh, Kilmaine Avenue, Lurgan and more!









Last but not least, we’ve got plenty of snaps to share from England, with street parties held in all corners of the nation! Pictured here are some of the celebrations from The Oval Cricket Ground, Northampton, Shirehampton, Wigton, East London, Morecombe and Windsor Castle.
