Big Lunch

The Hawthorn Annual Big Lunch Day

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 annually on the first Sunday in June in a simple act of community, friendship and fun. Since starting in 2009, thousands of Big Lunches have taken place in all types of communities. In 2014, 4.83 million people took to their streets, gardens and community spaces for the sixth annual Big Lunch.

We hope to arrange the Big Lunch once again in 2023.
