The Big Virtual Lunch weekend

various at East Midlands

East Midlands

06.06.2020 - 07.06.2020


This summer, for the first time in its 10-year history, The Big Lunch will become The Big ‘Virtual’ Lunch, with residents being encouraged to host a mini event and share images and video or even letting others log in to your Big Lunch using an online video sharing platform (such as WhatsApp and Zoom), on the weekend 6-7 June.

The Big Lunch is about celebrating community connections and getting to know each other better. Now more than ever we need to make time for each other so let’s get the nation talking over a cuppa and a bite to eat. Please join the annual thanksgiving weekend for neighbours and communities and have fun with The Big ‘Virtual’ Lunch on 6-7 June.

There are many people in our communities self-isolating at this time, so to ensure everyone’s invited to ‘The Big Lunch’ below are some ideas you can use to celebrate community connections with your neighbours and friends. You might know someone down your road that this would make a huge difference to. Your local big lunch event can be as big or small as you want it to be. It’s up to you.

There are lots of ways to get involved online on the phone or on your doorstepFind out how at and download free resources and The Big Virtual Lunch pack here.
