Are you ready? Because our biggest event of the year, Big Local Connects, is back and better than ever! 

Open to all 150 Big Local areas, join us for two days jam-packed with celebrations, inspiration, and lots of chances to discover new skills. 

There will be a huge range of learning sessions and fun activities to take part in all based around our 2021 theme of “Looking to the future: what we want our community to be like in 2026 and beyond”.  

There will also be plenty of time to chat with other Big Local areas, get the latest news in the Extra Local newspaper, enjoy delicious food and explore the Ideas Hub.

Registration opens in May and we will be sending out more updates about the event soon, so watch this space!
