The Big Lunch 2021 – the UK’s annual celebration to give thanks and get to know our neighbours and communities.


This year, we want to support communities as we emerge from the toughest of times and start to reconnect with the world around us, safely.

The Big Lunch is your chance to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better.  The big date from 5 June – join in online, on your doorstep, or over the fence.  It’s on.

It might be a little different again, but this year there are more reasons than ever to get together for community, friendship and fun.

Sign up for your free Big Lunch pack full of tips and ideas on hosting your own event (in whatever way you want to do it) and let’s have something to look forward to!

We recommend organiser’s check the latest Government guidelines and our top tips for a socially safe Big Lunch  and plan their events with safety, group numbers and social distancing rules in mind.

If you would like some support to help your group to recover as the Covid pandemic eases – there are still a few days left to apply for the Community Recovery Fund
