"Join tens of thousands of people at the Big IF London event on Saturday 8 June to make a massive noise and demand an end to hunger.
The free event will feature inspiring speeches from philanthropist Bill Gates, former Archbishop of Canterbury and Chair of Christian Aid Rowan Williams, and broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky. Specially recorded messages from David Beckham and Eddie Izzard will also be broadcast to the crowd.
The event will be hosted by Gethin Jones and Myleene Klass and will feature exclusive appearances from a number of campaign supporters, including Grammy Award-winning singer Angelique Kidjo. They will join thousands of people in Hyde Park to demand that David Cameron and G8 leaders tackle the causes of global hunger. Additional names will be announced in the run-up to the event."
The main events starts at 2pm, but there's flower planting at 10am.
I suggest an informal get together by The Vegan Society's stall at 3pm if you want to meet other members. (I'll be volunteering on their stall in the afternoon.)

You might need to register at that site too!
And I recommend their map rather than Meetup's...
The Vegan Society says...
"The rally is to the south of the Serpentine, between Rotton Row and Kensington Road, near the Hyde Park Barracks. We will be at the east end of the so-called 'Campaigns Zone' - near the non-vegan catering, unfortunately...
...the stand will be open to the public from 2 pm until 5 pm, and there will be a brief 'rally' of everyone in the next zone over at about 3:15 pm."
