The Great Get Together

What is The Great Get Together?

People are being invited to come together with friends, neighbours and others they don’t yet know for street parties, picnics, barbeques and bake-off competitions. It follows the first anniversary of Jo Cox’s murder on June 16 last year.

The Great Get-Together will take place over the weekend of June 17 and 18. The weekend will be an opportunity to celebrate all that Britain’s diverse communities hold in common.
