Bradford & District, The Big Lunch Great Get Together 2017

15 May 2017

Bradford Council is offering grants of up to £200 to support local Great Get Together/ Big Lunch activities and events in Bradford district.

"The Big Lunch is the UK's annual get together for neighbours. Every year in June since the idea began in 2009, millions of people stop what they're doing and get together with neighbours in a nationwide act of community and friendship. This year the Big Lunch is hosting The Great Get-Together which will take place over the weekend of 17 and 18 June.

"As The Great Get Together takes place during the month of Ramadan there will be a special Big Iftar event taking place too. People from all backgrounds will be encouraged to participate in a meal with members of our Muslims communities when they open their fast."

"This can include any of the following:

  • Street Party
  • Lunar Lunch/Iftar 
  • Community Barbeque
  • Pot Luck Supper
  • Picnic"

All events and activities must take place between 16 June and 30 June 2017.

"Grants need to be made via registered community or voluntary groups or other organisations with a constitution and bank account (we will accept applications from Parish Councils and other similar bodies)"


Please read the guidance notes on pages 1 & 2 of the application form.

The deadline for applications is 29 May 2017 (5pm).
