The big lunch is a one day get together for neighbours and takes place annually on the first Sunday in June.
Since starting in 2009, thousands of Big Lunches have taken place in all types of community across the UK. Last year 3.65 million people took to their streets, gardens and community spaces for the fifth annual Big Lunch. This year's Big Lunch is on Sunday 7 June, 2015.
