About The Big Lunch

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 in a simple act of community, friendship and fun. This year it’s happening on Sunday 5th June and a record number of people are expected to take part - why not be one of them?
A Big Lunch can be anything from a few neighbours getting together in the garden or on the street, to a full blown party with food, music and decoration that quite literally stops the traffic.
Since starting in 2009, thousands of Big Lunches have taken place in all kinds of communities across the UK and the best part of a million people get involved each year.

Although i still think this is a great idea, After looking into it a bit further im not too sure this is exactly the route i wanted to be going down. It seems a little too broad for me, as i originally thought the peoples banquet was just a stand alone thing. However I could quite easily tweak it to make then event myself, using qualities from the banquet and big lunch.
