The Big Lunch is back and coming to a neighbourhood near you on Sunday 3 June 2018!

The idea is simple: In June each year, The Big Lunch encourages people to spend a few hours sharing food and friendship with their neighbours, celebrating community spirit right across the nation.

Last year a whopping 9.3 million people took part in one of the 96,000 events organised across the UK!

This year it’s going global as all 53 countries in the commonwealth will be taking part.

To be a part of The Big Lunch, the UK’s annual get-together for neighbours, go to for a FREE pack to help you organise your own Big Lunch with your community.

The Big Lunch doesn’t have to be BIG and it might not even be lunch. It could simply be a biscuit and a chinwag with the family next door.

Big Lunch Ambassador Ainsley Harriott is encouraging the nation to get eating and meeting. “It’s no secret that I love food. I love preparing it, cooking it and serving it,” Ainsley said. “But the thing I love most about food is sharing it. You don’t need to be a gourmet chef to host a Big Lunch, just rustle up some simple snacks and invite the neighbours round for a natter.”

Everyone’s invited – so what are you waiting for? Join the biggest community celebration the UK has ever seen!
