There are lots of great games and activity suggestions to keep the children (and grown-ups) entertained from traditional hop scotch and tug of war to the more modern street karaoke. Or you could get the whole street to learn the Big Jubilee Dance.
For yummy treats try our website and our blog where we’ve just had a week of recipe ideas perfect for sharing with your neighbours, and check out this special Diamond Jubilee Grace for communities to mark the start of their Big Lunches.
Don’t forget to brighten up your area with a bit of homemade bunting it’s easier than you might think and instantly transforms your street or venue, but if that sounds too difficult, colourful paper chains are just as brilliant and with the children helping you’ll have enough to string up in no time at all.
So plenty to get on with but make sure you involve your neighbours too and make the preparations as fun as the day itself – after all, it’s what The Big Lunch is all about.
