The Big Lunch (in Hackney) Sunday 5th June

The big lunch

The Big Lunch is a very simple idea from the Eden Project. The aim is to get as many people as possible across the whole of the UK to have lunch with their neighbours in a simple act of community friendship and fun. This year it’s happening on Sunday 5th June and a record number of people are expected to take part – why not be one of them?

A Big Lunch can be anything from a few neighbours getting together in the garden or on the street to a full blown party with food music and decoration that quite literally stops the traffic.

  1. I live on Ickburgh Road, and we’ve had a big lunch on the nationally designated day for the past two years. Thing is it’s gotten very big very quickly, so this year we’re moving it to a Saturday to allow for recovery time. It’s going to be the first weekend of July if im not mistaken, and if previous years are anything to go by it’ll be pretty epic.

  2. Oh I didn’t spot this thread. We’re having a Big Lunch in Stokey on Sunday followed by our first community mapping event:
