Below are answers to a lot of commonly asked questions. Got a question that isn’t answered here? Get in touch at hello@greatgettogether.org

What should a get together look like?

Your get together can look however you want. If you are looking for inspiration, you could get creative with gingham decorations inspired by The Great Get Together branding. In Jo’s constituency of Batley and Spen, we’ll be decorating a street party in the centre of the town with a gingham tablecloth, so we’d love you to also get creative with gingham decorations.

The Big Lunch also has tips and ideas for making your own decorations.

I can't host an event myself - will I be able to see a list of events happening across the U.K. that I could join?

For the final weeks, we’re planning to show a map of all public events. Each host will be able to choose whether their event is private or public. Stay tuned for more!

What happens once I sign up for a Great Get Together kit?

If you request a pack by post, you’ll receive it within a few weeks of signing up. We will also be sending occasional tips, ideas and reminders by email to those who sign up. We will not be asking for donations.

Can we fundraise at our get together?

The Great Get Together is about bringing people together, and you’re welcome to use it as a way of fundraising for a good cause.

Can I combine our Great Get Together to another event e.g. our local village fete?

Please do! We’d recommend still signing up for a kit as it’s full of stickers and ideas for what to do.

Is The Great Get Together party political or about Brexit?

Not at all! The idea for The Great Get Together is about bringing communities together to celebrate what we have in common. It has cross party backing and is supported by some of the most prominent Remain and Brexit campaigners, but it is completely outside of party politics and the Brexit debate.
