The Big Lunch

2-5 June 2022
The UK’s annual thank you celebration for neighbours and community!

The Big Lunch is your chance to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better.  This year, The Big Jubilee Lunch is part of the official community celebrations for The Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend and The Big Lunch will once again kick start a whole Month of Community, so there are more reasons than ever to get together and a whole summer to party!

There's still time to join in! Check out our Last Minute Big Lunch Tips to get involved this summer.

And, 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!
