What is the Big Jubilee Lunch?

Each year, Eden Project Communities runs a Big Lunch event, with millions of people across the UK attending.

The lunch helps to combat loneliness, with 6.6 million people saying that it helped them feel less lonely.

The event has run annually since 2009, and now there will be a Big Jubilee Lunch to mark Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The Big Jubilee Lunch is a once-in-a-lifetime event and the lunch could be a small gathering in your garden, park or driveway, or a street party with your neighbours.

You can register your own event for free via the Big Jubilee Lunch website and receive an online pack that includes inspiration for the event, invitations, and recipes that would be great for your big day.

When will it take place?

The Big Jubilee Lunch will take place on Sunday across the UK.

Will there be any events taking place in Portsmouth?
