My small contribution to the #GreatGetTogether
A weekend of celebrations to mark the anniversary of the murder of beloved Jo Cox. 16 - 18 June!

The Duchess of Cornwall gets some baking tips from @jamieoliver in the Clarence House kitchen as HRH hosts a reception to mark the launch of the #GreatGetTogether! 🍰

The #GreatGetTogether is organised by The Big Lunch and The Jo Cox Foundation, and aims to encourage as many people as possible across the UK to have lunch on a weekend in June in a simple act of community, friendship and fun. HRH is Patron of The Big Lunch.

This year’s Great Get Together aims to celebrate Britain's diverse communities.

Yesterday I met Saffiyah Khan seen here smiling down an EDL protester. We were on The Last Leg in memory of Jo Cox. At a time when our country feels very divided, let us look for all that unites us #greatgettogether #moreincommon

The Jo Cox Foundation are holding the #greatgettogether next weekend, from June 16th to 18th. They are calling for people to get together with neighbours, friends and communities for a picnic, a BBQ, a street party or a festival. We'll be joining in, alongside hundreds of thousands of other Great Get Togethers.

The #GreatGetTogether begins today - an opportunity for organisations, neighbours and friends to come together to share in and celebrate our differences and what we have in common.

To celebrate, we've teamed up with our neighbours the @national_gallery to explore common links between our Collections. For example, you can see Ramsay Reinagle's portrait of artist John Constable in our eighteenth century galleries, and Constable's masterpiece The Hay Wain on display in Room 34 of the National Gallery.

Jo Cox's murder in June 2016 shocked the world. In the aftermath of her tragic death her husband Brendan Cox urged us to remember Jo's life and what she stood for and not the manner of her death. In this inspiring and impassioned portrait of Jo - as daughter, mother, wife, sister, MP and campaigner - we see how much she gave and much more she had to give. The values she embraced of togetherness, inclusion and compassion are needed now more than ever. A touching and very human portrait of an extraordinary woman, whose legacy has already inspired others. This summer over 100,000 events were part of The Great Get Together in honour of Jo. 'We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us.' All Brendan Cox's royalties will go to the Jo Cox Foundation.

You know your day can only get better when by 10am you've managed to lock yourself out and discover food that you cooked six days ago in a saucepan. Yeah. So that was nice. Oh and cleared up cat leftovers and had 11 headaches by noon. On the plus side I've spent the day making a pavlova for a post barbecue dinner with my parents tomorrow. And this bad boy. We are off to the polo tomorrow so need a picnic. And no self respecting picnic is complete without a quiche is it?. Just don't tell Mr B it's got courgette in it. It's also the #greatgettogether tomorrow so the perfect excuse to make a bit of an effort Bit tired now so having ten minutes on the sofa ahead of Guns N Roses tonight. And oh my days how hot is it today?!!

Join the first ever UoB School Street Party! Bring food to share & invite your family and friends. We'll be ending this year by celebrating all that we have in common. #moreincommon #greatgettogether #party #summertime

Fantastic news! The Huddersfield-born actor, Jodie Whittaker, has become the 13th Doctor Who.
She said: "It's more than an honour to play the Doctor. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can't wait."
We couldn't have wished for a better actor, with a feel for such an iconic character as well as the uncertain times we live in. Her words remind us of a moving speech at last month's #changeofartfestival (part of #GreatGetTogether). "Let hope sing. What brings us together is that we're all human. We have far more in common than that which divides us." Jodie Whittaker debuts on #ChristmasDay #2017. Will you be watching? We can't wait! πŸ“ΊπŸŒ |
