Following the success of street parties held across Bromley to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and the King’s Coronation in 2023, Bromley Council is waiving road closure fees for those applying to hold a street party in support of the Big Lunch on June 1 or 2, 2024.

What is the Big Lunch?
From the website: The Big Lunch is the UK’s annual get-together for neighbours and communities, with millions of people coming together for a few hours of food, friendship, and fun. It connects people and encourages friendlier, safer communities where people start to share more – conversations, ideas, skills, resources and friendship.

Find guidance on how to organise a street party here: Big Lunch resources.

How can I apply? Once you have formed a group of neighbours willing to organise and participate in the party, you can apply online here: Street parties and public events. Party organisers are responsible for informing neighbours and managing vehicle access points.

What are the deadlines? Applications must be submitted by March 4, 2024.
