Already attending or hosting an event? Why not turn it into a get together?

If you are already attending or hosting an event between 16-18 June, why not turn it into a get together? It could be big or small, a street party or a BBQ with friends… Whatever the event, we would love for you to join us and be part of a national celebration of what we have in common.

In joining The Great Get Together and registering your existing event with us you’ll get loads of great advice and resources to help you make your event extra special.

So sprinkle your existing event with some feel-good community spirit (and a little bit of gingham)...

In Batley and Spen, Jo Cox’s constituency, they’re hosting a massive street party and covering all the tables in red gingham tablecloths. We’d love you to get creative with the red gingham theme too! Maybe you could put up some red gingham bunting or cover your table in a gingham tablecloth too? Here are some ideas for getting creative with gingham.

Follow this step by step guide to make your get together great, and make sure you’ve signed up for a free pack filled with even more tips, help, recipes and more!

Get to know your neighbours, catch up with old friends, enjoy your get together and have fun!

You have plenty of time to organise your get together and we hope you have a blast planning it too! If you do have any questions, check out our FAQs page.
