  • Visitor Information

Bring a picnic lunch and a favourite children's book to join in a celebration of community at Brunswick Square gardens adjacent to the Foundling Museum as it joins the Charles Dickens Museum for The Great Get Together. A weekend of celebrations inspired by Jo Cox's belief that 'we have far more in common than that which divides us', there'll be street parties, BBQs, picnics, coffee mornings, tea parties and iftars taking place across the country. In London events include a street party on Bankside with a dog show, city farm and wacky races, a Southwark-based Big Lunch at Potters Fields and St John's Churchyard, the Crouch End Festival featuring a Big Lunch, and a Big Lunch at the Olympic Stadium, expected to attract as many as 10,000 people.
