Big Jubilee Lunch
THIS year’s Big Lunch is part of the official programme of celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and organisers are hoping to recreate the community spirit seen during the Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977.
The Big Lunch is an Eden Project initiative encouraging people across the UK to have lunch with their neighbours once a year as a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
The fourth annual Big Lunch falls on the same weekend as the Jubilee so anyone who would like to celebrate and commemorate the Queen’s 60 year–reign can do so with a Big Jubilee Lunch.
A Big Lunch spokesperson said: “Some 10 million people came out in sunny 1977 to celebrate the Silver Jubilee so we hope a large number of people will take part in The Big Lunch for the first time in 2012 - joining the best part of two million of us that have been doing it for the last three years!
“The beauty of The Big Lunch is that people themselves decide everything about their own event. The venue can be wherever you want or have space, the theme whatever you fancy – food and people are the key ingredients. Quite simply we want to get as many people as possible to sit down and have lunch with their neighbours on the first Sunday in June. After all The Big Lunch is all about community, friendship and fun!”
Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall is now patron of the Big Jubilee Lunch after a group of children visited Clarence House and asked her to be in March.
