Somehow, this will be our NINTH annual Big Lunch! The nationwide 'movement' has grown every year, with more and more streets holding events to enable neighbours to socialise. This year, The Big Lunch is partnering with the launch of The Great Get Together, a new project in memory of Jo Cox, tragically murdered 16th June last year. So let's make this the biggest and best Chapel Allerton Big Lunch ever!

We'll provide live music, marquees, tables, seating, and games for the kids. We just need YOU to bring some food to share! Bring whatever you like: homemade, shop bought, sweet, savoury - the choice is yours! BUT, the best homemade dish will win lunch for two at Kith & Kin!

Lastly, but certainly not least, we'll be announcing the winners of the 2017 Chapel Allerton Awards! The Finalists are all listed below.

Running Order (all times approx and open to change!)
12:00 - Little Mistakes
13:00 - Prize Awarded for Best Homemade Food!
13:15 - Dave Pilla
14:00 - Ellie Coast
15:00 - Chapel Allerton Awards
