The Big Lunch in Bicester is like the glue of our Community, we work with every Charity & Community group in Bicester throughout the year culminating in our huge Community event where we all come together for one day to each bring something different to our lunch.
This year Crown Walk arena will be run jointly with OYAP Trust (formerly Oxfordshire Youth Arts Project) & YOBs (Youth of Bicester).
Throughout the day OYAP will be running a Crown Making Workshop. In preparation for the Crown Parade & Competition we are inviting families with children.. (and adults of course) to come and make their own crowns which they can then wear throughout the day to celebrate the Queen's 90th Birthday and take part in our Crown Parade Competition then Giant Crown Conga all around the town. This activity will take place outside The Studio in the aptly named Crown Walk running from 12pm - 2.30pm.
Tired of small talk? Try some big talk! YOBs will be running a series of Conversation Cafes in Crown Walk (outside the Big Lunch HQ) - We are inviting people to come along to have a real conversation with the YOBs.
We would love to help support these amazing charities fund the running of their activities. They need arts & craft materials, drinks for the cafe and it's participants as well as helping towards the costs of posters.

We are extremely fortunate to have OYAP Trust for our children in Bicester, let's make sure they are still around for our children's children.
