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 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 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. Starting at one o’clock and continuing throughout the afternoon and into the evening, outside the Prince of Wales and the George and Dragon. There will be food, fun, and music from our talented local performers. Everyone is welcome; just bring along some food to share.
There will also be a collection for the local Food Bank. Bring yourself, a few quid, a bit of food and come and meet your neighbours.
