A royally good weekend!

We invited everyone to be part of history with the Coronation Big Lunch, which took place from 6-8 May to celebrate His Majesty The King and Her Majesty the Queen’s Coronation. Thousands of events were held to share friendship, food and fun across the world. Communities across the UK celebrated incredible spirit and connection.

The impact of the Coronation Big Lunch reaches far beyond the weekend, with new friendships being made, money raised for local causes and neighbours feeling more connected to where they live.

If you’d like to download the Coronation Big Lunch pack as a commemorative item, it’s still available.

“Right away, I knew it was a great idea. We live in a close where people didn’t really know each other… it’s all about just talking to your neighbours. After, you can see the brilliant things that come from that.”
