To be honest I wasn’t all that bothered about the Jubilee this weekend. I’m not a royalist, not even a big fan of the whole monarchy thing and had just seen it as another excuse to get us Brits to part with yet more cash and fund more tourist tat.
That was however until I heard about the Diamond Jubilee Big Lunch. The Big Lunch is not a new concept, in fact this is the fourth Big Lunch and just happens to fall on the same weekend as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
As announced by Buckingham Palace The Big Jubilee Lunch will be a part of the main programme of events over the central weekend of Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June 2012. A special 4-day bank holiday – Saturday 2nd to Tuesday 5th June. So, what better way to get outside and get your neighbours together and get to know each other over sandwiches, cake and lots of scrumptious goodies whilst having a holiday at the same time!
