The Big Knock for The Big Lunch!

With under three weeks until the Coronation Big Lunch, we’re delighted to have one of the UK’s best loved celebrity TV Chefs, Ainsley Harriott (MBE), helping us get people excited about the celebrations!

Our long-standing ambassador joined event organisers in London to get the Coronation party started by knocking on doors, handing out invitations and encouraging more people to join the festivities on 6-8 May.

Ainsley, of Ready, Steady, Cook! fame shared these wise words:

“You might feel nervous about knocking on doors, but take the plunge and we're sure you’ll be met by welcoming faces. Celebrations are just weeks away, so now’s the time to get the ball rolling!’

Big or small, whatever you fancy doing, we’ve got last minute advice, tips on beating ‘invite anxiety’ and everything you need to get involved – for the Coronation Big Lunch in May or with an event in June!
