The Great Get Together is inspired by Jo Cox, who was killed in 2016. The weekend aims to bring communities together and celebrate all that unites us through a weekend of neighbourhood celebrations across the country from the 22nd – 24th June. It’s promising build on the success of last year with to be the biggest community celebrations this year!
In the words of The Great Get Together themselves; “We’re inviting people to get together with their neighbours to share food and celebrate all that we hold in common. It could be a street party or a shared barbecue, a picnic or a bake off. What matters is that we have fun and bring communities closer together.”
