Join in - Bring people together to celebrate community and build connections across the Commonwealth


12 March - 22 April 2018

From Commonwealth Day on 12 March until 22 April, we're inviting everyone to celebrate being part of the Commonwealth by hosting a Commonwealth Big Lunch.

During this time the UK will host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, a summit focused on creating a better future for people across the Commonwealth with leaders from all 52 nations expected to take part. 

We are really excited to be part of the official celebrations - imagine what could happen if Commonwealth Big Lunches stretched across 6 continents!
