The Big Lunch is the UK’s biggest annual get together for neighbours.
It’s a simple idea – that for a few glorious hours, cars stop, shyness stops and neighbours come together in the street to meet, greet, share, swap, sing, plan and laugh.
In 2017, 9.3 million people took to their streets, gardens and neighbourhoods to join in for a few hours of community, friendship and fun.
The Big Lunch is an idea from the Eden Project made possible by the National Lottery, to get everyone together to share food, fun and friendship.
It doesn’t matter if your Big Lunch is big or small – whether you’re having a cup of tea with a neighbour or a full-on street party, The Big Lunch is an opportunity to help build the connections that create stronger, happier communities.
