The Big Lunch

Thu 16 May 2019

The Big Lunch

The Big Lunch is about millions of people getting together to share food, have fun and get to know each other better.  It's a simple idea - that for a few glorious hours, cars stop, shyness stops and neighbours come together in the street to meet, greet, share, swap, sing, plan and laugh.
