As part of the central weekend of celebrations for the Jubilee, London’s historic Piccadilly will play host to the Piccadilly Big Jubilee Lunch Street Sarty.
Members of the public can register for a free place at the table, to bring their lunch to, on www.piccadillybigjubileelunch.org. The event will stretch the length of Piccadilly – from Piccadilly Circus to the top of St James’s Street. Attendees can either bring their own lunch or purchase from the stalls and shops along Piccadilly, to eat at the trestle tables.
We are also proud to announce that our friends at Start and the Old Royal Naval College (ORNC) have announced details of their collaboration to host a Big Jubilee Lunch in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, hailing it one of the UK’s biggest street parties! This event, also on Sunday 3rd June, is set to commemorate The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by welcoming up to 8,000 local residents and visitors. It will feature a huge table running the full length of the Old Royal Navy College, seating up to 800 people at any one time.
Guests can bring their own picnics, or select from an eclectic range of global and local food stalls, selling both hot and cold dishes complemented by specialist beers from the Meantime Brewing. A fun day out is guaranteed for all ages with a variety of activities, including live entertainment by local and community performers, drop-in workshops, food and craft stalls and a big screen.
The day will also see the opening of Start Imagining’s From Tip to Ship exhibition in the Discover Greenwich Visitor Centre, featuring the 6 winning designs from a nationwide children’s competition. It will culminate in the passing of the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.
Joey Tabone, Director of Start, says “We love to create opportunities to entertain people and inspire them to discover and try all sorts of sustainable living ideas, which is why we are delighted to be working with the ORNC and The Big Lunch to create this fantastic event.”
Councillor Chris Roberts, Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, added “We’re proud to support the Big Jubilee Lunch as it is offers our local community a great way to come together and enjoy a fun day out.”
