The Big Lunch for Councils

The Big Lunch, an idea from the Eden Project, made possible by the National Lottery, brings communities together.  

A whopping nine million people took part last year alone, creating and strengthening community connection across the UK, which is more important than ever before.

This year, The Big Jubilee Lunch is part of the official celebrations for HM The Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations from 2-5 June 2022, and The Big Lunch weekend will once again kick off a whole Month of Community.

Councils can play a huge role at a local level to encourage participation, so please get behind The Big Jubilee Lunch and use our Communications Toolkit to spread the word. Already supporting the campaign? Let us know if we should add you to our Platinum Councils List.

Questions?  Get in touch, keep up-to-date with our monthly newsletter and sign up for our Council Updates.


Spread the word about your plans using our toolkits, sample press release and assets for social media.
