The Big Lunch

What's it all about?

The Big Lunch is the UK’s annual get-together for neighbours and communities, with millions of people coming together to share friendship, food and fun and celebrate community connections.

An idea from the Eden Project, made possible by The National Lottery, The Big Lunch makes a real difference to how we see and feel about our communities; it’s an opportunity to share cultures, experiences, stories, ideas and skills – helping people grow local connections and feel a greater sense of belonging to where they live, with a whopping one in five of the UK population taking part last year.

From a cuppa with a neighbour or a back garden BBQ, to a full-blown street party, communities all over the UK join in, and everyone everywhere is welcome, and this year we’re dishing up ideas to help make it the greenest Big Lunch yet!

Find everything you need to get your party started at, and join in this June!
