The Great Get Together
The Great Get Together is inspired by Jo Cox, who was killed on the 16th of June 2016. In her first speech in Parliament, Jo said, ”We have more in common than that which divides us”. Through the Great Get Together, we ask people across the country to embrace Jo’s words and come together each June to hold events that bring people together.
This year, which marks the 5th anniversary of Jo Cox’s murder, will also be the 5th time the Great Get Together will bring people together across the UK to celebrate Jo Cox’s #MoreInCommon message.
People are invited to come together with friends, neighbours, and others they don’t yet know for neighbourhood get togethers. From picnics and BBQs to garden parties and socially distanced street parties, the weekend will be an opportunity to celebrate all that the UK’s vibrant communities hold in common.
We are drawing the focus of this year’s Great Get Together back to its original purpose: making new connections and celebrating that we have #MoreInCommon.
“We have far more in common than that which divides us.” - Jo Cox, 2015. Let’s come together to show we’re united.
