Bradford & District, The Big Lunch Great Get Together - Round 2

7 June 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. A Big Lunch or Get Together can be anything from a small gathering in a garden, park or driveway, to a larger party with trestle tables down the middle of your street. The official Big Lunch date in June isn’t practical for every community so you can run one at any time you fancy.

"Following on from our very popular Big Lunch Great Get Together Round 1 Grant Scheme, we have now decided to open up a Round 2 scheme, which will enable those who would like to organise a community Big Lunch Great Get Together type event during the summer months, the opportunity to apply for a small grant to support their activity.

"People from all over the district are invited to come together with friends, neighbours and others they don’t yet know to get involved and take part in street parties, picnics, barbeques and bake-off competitions."

All events and activities must take place between 24 July and 30 September 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 Round 2 application form.

The deadline for applications is 3 July 2017 (5pm).
