Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch 2018 logo

The annual Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch unites the City of London to show their support for members of her Majesty’s Armed Forces and Veterans through the three National Service Charities; ABF The Soldiers' Charity, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.

The Lunch supports members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces and Veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Lunch is hosted by the Lord Mayor of the City of London, and since 2008 has raised over £2m for the British Army's national charity, ABF The Soldiers' Charity.

Organised by ABF The Soldiers' Charity, the event will also be supporting The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.

Stay tuned for details for the 13th Annual Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch in 2020.
