The Big Lunch

The Big Lunch

2-5 June 2022
The UK’s annual date to celebrate neighbours and community!

The Big Lunch is your chance to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better.  This year, it's taking place over a whole Month of Community, so there's plenty of time to join in - online, on your doorstep, or over the fence.  It's on.

It might be a little different again, but this year there are more reasons than ever to get together for community, friendship and fun.  Sign up for your free Big Lunch pack full of tips and ideas on hosting your own event (in whatever way you want to do it) and let's have something to look forward to!

There’s a Big Lunch for everyone: get our top tips on how to throw a Big Lunch in your neighbourhood, or with your charity, community group, council and more… 

Every year we gather feedback to help us grow and improve The Big Lunch together. If you held or attended a Big Lunch, please take our 10 minute survey and you could win one of five £50 vouchers for the Eden Project online shop. The survey will be open throughout the month so don't worry if you haven't had your Big Lunch yet, just pop back when you have!

Don’t forget to follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram, and you can now join our Facebook group to swap ideas, find out what other people are doing and share experiences!
