This weekend of getting together was inspired by Jo Cox, a former British Member of Parliament. Her famous maiden speech with the words "we have more in common than that which divides us" sparked a new kind of unity in the United Kingdom. The Great Get Together, held on what would have been Jo's birthday weekend, highlights this unity further.
“The people of Greater Manchester have shown what it means to build stronger communities as a way to drive out extremism and hatred," said Andy Burnham, a good friend of Jo's. "I’m delighted that so many people across the city and beyond will be getting involved in The Great Get Together. There are times to remember those we have lost and times to celebrate what we have in common and I look forward to seeing people out enjoying themselves at events large and small in the spirit Jo taught us to embrace.”
Though last years' event was a large success, bringing together the people in over 120,000 events, the 2018 Great Get Together is looking to grow exponentially upon last year. From sporting events to community bake-offs and barbecues, there will be no shortage of fun to be found in the boroughs near you.
