The Big Lunch is the UK’s annual big date to celebrate and give thanks to our neighbours and communities. Started in 2009, it’s an idea from the Eden Project that each year brings 6 million people together, made possible by The National Lottery and supported by new headline sponsors Iceland Foods.

People meet, chat and have fun in their neighbourhoods, annually fundraising £8m for local causes they care about. This year, there are even more reasons than ever to get together and enjoy. The Big Lunch as the big date on 5-6 June kicks off a Month of Community, offering a feast of opportunities to share friendship and fun, and make positive local connections where you live.

Peter Stewart, Eden Project Executive Director: “Together we can inspire millions of people across the UK to hold a Big Lunch and make positive local connections in their communities.
