Plan your private residents street party

The Big Lunch

The Big Lunch is a community event promotion which Streets Alive helped to get going.

One key point – make sure you are clear whether you want a neighbours-only street party without external publicity, no licence etc., as explained on this web site, or a public event that needs money, insurance, a licence etc.

Guidance for Councils for The Big Lunch

These are key points we suggest for councils to support The Big Lunch:

  • Be clear in your arrangements whether events are private street parties which should not normally require road closure fees, insurance, a licence or funding, or public events which do require these things.
  • We can advise you how to support dozens of smaller events self-organised by residents, rather than a handful of funded events. E.g. Southampton Council last year facilitated 23 at low cost.
  • The events could be linked with Community Partnership or any other processes and outcomes.
