The Great Get Together is the UK’s annual celebration of everything that unites our communities, inspired by Jo Cox’s belief that we have more in common than that which divides us.
The need to celebrate unity and reject division is as relevant now as it was eight years ago. From 21-23 June 2024, on the weekend of Jo’s birthday, bring your community together to show all that we have in common. Sign up for email updates to be notified when we launch our map, toolkit, and more exciting resources.
While we celebrate our diversity, what surprises me time and time again as I travel around the constituency is that we are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.Jo Cox
The Great Get Together restores my faith in human kindness and confirms the need to connect and interact with others.
