The Big IF London event

The Big IF London event will take place on Saturday 8 June at 2.00pm in Hyde Park, London.

The event will begin IF’s 10-day campaign leading up to the G8 summit in Lough Erne, Northern Ireland. And coincides with David Cameron is hosting an international Hunger Summit in London on June 8, a huge opportunity to tackle hunger and save millions of lives.

Organisers want thousands of people to come together for the Big IF event in London to raise their voices against the scandal that one in eight people across the world  do not have enough food, even though we know there is enough food for everyone. IF we make enough noise, G8 leaders will have to act.

At the event the crowd will work together to create an iconic image of support for tackling hunger, created with spinning flowers, to form a powerful reminder of the two million children whose lives are lost because of hunger each year.

The main event starts at 2.00pm. However, if you want to add your spinning flower to the epic image, you can do this from 10.00am.

In addition, there will be an ecumenical service at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster, at 11 am, prior to a march to Hyde Park.
