The Great Get Together: The Big Lunch at the Olympic ParkA flagship event of the Great Get Together, the Big Lunch at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park invites everyone to come together for a huge picnic and free entertainment. This year's Big Lunch is part of a nationwide event with the Jo Cox Foundation to bring communities together to celebrate connections and that which unites us. It's the perfect opportunity to come to the park and celebrate London's diverse communities through music, dance, storytelling, sports and food from around the world. Bring a picnic or buy food from the many food stalls, take part in the activities and meet your fellow Londoners.

About Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

A year after the 2012 London Olympic Games, the former Olympic Park re-opened as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - a site of over 250 acres of beautifully landscaped open space and 6.5 km of waterways. The opening of the north park on Saturday 27th July 2013 was the first phase of transforming the Olympic Park and the rest of the 560 acre park opened in spring 2014.
