The Big Lunch is a one day get-together for neighbours – an idea from the Eden Project, made possible by the Big Lottery Fund, encouraging people across the UK to come together for a few hours of food, friendship and fun.
In 2017 The Big Lunch will take place across the UK in June and in Ilfracombe the event will take the form of a street party with entertainment in Fore Street which will be closed to traffic for the day. The event is being organised by The Friends of Fore Street, a community organisation based in and around Fore Street with the aim to raise the profile of Ilfracombe's oldest street.
All are welcome to join in. It would be great if everyone can contribute to the food (even just some crisps or sandwiches) but that isn't necessary. Just turn up and have a good time. Also if anyone has any spare food cans or dried food there will be a collection on behalf of our local food bank.
The fun starts around midday with live music & entertainers plus tables of free food. The entertainment will continue throughout the afternoon and into the evening.
