Film still: John Bishop & children at Big Lunch in Surrey
Say hello during the Month of Community!

The Big Lunch has been bringing neighbours together since 2009 and an incredible 13.4 million people have taken part so far this year, raising a whopping £14.4 million for local causes!

The Coronation Big Lunch (6-8 May) saw thousands of street parties and get-togethers happening UK-wide, but that was just the start. Events continue to take place throughout June, for the Month of Community.

If you celebrated the Coronation and fancy round two, or you’re yet to join in, our free Big Lunch pack has everything you need to plan an event.

Take inspiration from the space2grow community in Surrey, who have just held a Big Lunch attended by comedian John Bishop. John says it all starts by simply saying hello, so what are you waiting for?!
