Fancy holding your Big Lunch online but not sure where to start?  Don't worry, we can help! With all of our network events moving online this past year, we've got our heads around how to create online events, how to make them fun, and how to keep them safe.

Take a look at our 'how to' video below.

Public Events

If you want to hold a Big Lunch for your neighbourhood, community or local area which is open to the public, Kate talks you through how to set up an event on Eventbrite which allows you to promote it more widely.

Private Events

If you just want to set up a Big Lunch for neighbours or a specific group of people on Zoom, fast forward to around 20 minutes to see how to set up a Zoom meeting, then simply share the registration link by email to the people you want to invite.


 Spread the word

When you're all set up let us know your event details by emailing us and we can add it to our website for you to give your Big Lunch a bit of a boost.

Make it Fun

There are lots of ideas for bringing a little of The Big Lunch magic to your online activity in our Free Big Lunch pack this year -  if you haven't already got one, sign up for your copy now.

Keep it safe

Check out our top tips for Zoom.  Need some more help and want to get up to speed before your Big Lunch?  Kate from our friends 'Scottish Tech Army' will be joining us for an online session on 31 May to answer your questions about all things Zoom, including how to keep your session safe and how to make it fun! Register free here, and you can submit your questions in advance by emailing Sophie
