Grainne McCloskey, Scotland and Northern Ireland Regional Manager says, “We’re excited to meet representatives of community groups, individuals planning to get together with neighbours, school teachers, youth leaders and anyone getting ready to organise a Big Lunch this summer at Bessbrook Community Centre on Thursday 27 April.

“It makes sense during this cost of living crisis to keep costs down and give Big Lunch organisers the option to collect their resources directly.

“And it gives Eden Project Communities representatives a great opportunity to meet people face to face who have registered to host a Big Lunch on their doorstep, in their street or in their local community.

“They can come along and collect their Big Lunch resources and share details of their Big Lunch plans with us over a cup of tea.”

There are so many ways to come together and celebrate people of all ages who support each other and shape better futures together where they live this year with a range of activities from The Eden Project Communities.

The Coronation Big Lunch will form part of the celebrations for His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort’s Coronation Weekend between 6-8 May 2023.

Tens of thousands of events are expected to take place across the United Kingdom, bringing neighbours, communities and the nation together in celebration and friendship and raising community spirits as part of this historic occasion.

To register a Coronation Big Lunch and receive a letter from His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort, please visit:

For children aged 16 and under, there is a fun way to get them talking about the Coronation and the King’s love of the environment and positive action.

A photo competition which they can get involved in at home, school or in a children’s setting.




They can share photos of homemade wild crowns, made using items found in nature, for a chance to win commemorative Pawprint Coronation Big Lunch badges and a Big Lunch food voucher for the child’s community.

The month of Community runs throughout June, and people can host a Big Lunch at any time during the month.

Last year, a whopping 20 million people took part in Month of Community to cheer volunteers, connect with their neighbours, welcome refugees, support carers, raise awareness of loneliness, or simply to say thank you.

To register, please visit:

Her Majesty The Queen Consort has been Patron of the Big Lunch since 2013.

The Big Lunch is funded by National Lottery and is the UK’s largest annual community celebration for neighbours and communities, bringing millions of people together in a nationwide act of community friendship since 2009 and will again this year kick off the Month of Community in June, a time to come together to celebrate everything that makes our communities great!

It’s an idea from the Eden Project made possible by The National Lottery and is supported by PG Tips, Iceland and The Food Warehouse and the Julia and Hans Rausing Trust.

If you would like to host your own Big Lunch, please register at and come along to the Eden Project Communities roadshow in association with Newry, Mourne and Down District Council at Bessbrook Community Centre, 8 Mill Road, Bessbrook, on Thursday, 27 April from 10 am until 2 pm.
