Eden Project Communities

Big Lunches provide an opportunity for people of all ages to come together in an atmosphere of sharing and participation where positive interactions happen naturally, celebrating living local and strengthening community and wellbeing.

Our aim is to improve the happiness and wellbeing of people across the UK by helping to build more resilient and better connected communities.

Eden supports and encourages people all over the UK to take positive actions that strengthen local connections and build stronger communities.

We bring people together to build their confidence and grow and share their talents. We support individuals and communities as they create positive change to tackle local issues that matter to them most.

We started off with a very simple idea: one day a year when, for a few glorious hours, cars stop, shyness stops, gloom lifts and the UK comes together in the street to meet, greet, share, swap, sing, play and laugh for no reason other than that we all need to.

And so The Big Lunch was born. Since it began in 2009, The Big Lunch — the UK’s annual get together for neighbours — has grown to improve neighbourhoods and reduce isolation. Its now the biggest UK get together for neighbours.

Neighbours and community groups are invited to join in and have your own get togethers.Visit https://www.edenprojectcommunities.com/sign-up-and-get-your-free-big-lunch-starter-pack
