The Big Lunch in Brockley

The Big Lunch is an attempt to get the British to sit down together in public and enjoy a lunch party together. This year, the organisation is doing without the cloying TV adverts and - in Brockley at least - it seems to have paid off.

Last year, there were three events locally, this year there are eight, with others in Deptford, Honor Oak and Nunhead.

In Telegraph Hill, the organisers have cannily combined a Big Lunch on Kitto Road with the opening event for the Bold Vision "Hill Station" cafe and meeting place. In addition to the meal itself, there will be live music, a craft fair and a children's blanket sale.

Local resident Charlotte is also planning an informal picnic and games day in Hilly Fields as part of the celebrations and has created a Facebook group for the event here.

Other events are taking place on Adelaide Avenue, Rokeby Road, Dundalk Road, Arthurdon Road, Comerford Road and at the Salehurst / Manwood / Glynde / Ewhurst Road collective.

Rushford Rd. Last year there was one on either Salehurst or Crofton Park Road, that was reportedly very successful.

Go to several - a late breakfast, a lunch and an early tea...
