Cowes Big Lunch

4th June 2017

Northwood House

The Eden Project’s Big Lunch started off with a very simple idea: one day a year when, for a few glorious hours, cars stop, shyness stops, gloom lifts and the UK comes together in the street to meet, greet, share, swap, sing, play and laugh for no reason other than that we all need to.

And so The Big Lunch was born. Since it began in 2009, The Big Lunch — the UK’s annual get together for neighbours — has grown ten-fold and each year gets bigger and better.

This year the Royal Yacht Squadron will be supporting the Cowes Community and along with the Island Sailing Club, Northwood House, Cowes Town Council and Red Funnel will be sponsoring the Cowes Big Lunch which is taking place in Northwood Park: a free community style event with a giant picnic in the park, fun and family entertainment, a bake off, a photographic competition and a Fun Dog Show – all for the people of Cowes and surrounding areas. All funds raised will be donated to the following local charities:

Classic Boat Museum
Cowes Sea Cadets
Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust
Holy Trinity Cowes and St Mary’s Cowes
Cowes Carnival
