Halifax brought neighbours and communities closer together as part of their Big Lunch initiative.

The Big Lunch is a one-day get-together for neighbours – an idea from the Eden Project – encouraging people across the UK to come together for a few hours of food, friendship and fun.

Storybeat created a full range of multimedia content that ran across local and regional press, highlighting some of the events across the UK.

In 2017, 9.3 million people took to their streets, gardens and neighbourhoods to join in for a few hours of community, friendship and fun.
