The Summer Gateway: Social Media Content Ideas for June
Well, we’ve finally made it and there’s just one question to ask this month…what will happen on the 21st? We have made it through 15 months of restrictions, lockdowns and the stresses that surrounded the C word (no, not Christmas; the other one!). Here are all the National Days and Events you can look forward to getting involved in your newfound freedom.
With the Summer Solstice on the 21st, hopefully, the beautiful weather and sunny skies will hold up so we can thoroughly enjoy it this year with all our friends and loved ones.
June is the London Festival of Architecture – which is the world’s largest architecture event. Last year the entire festival went online, this year they are hoping to have a hybrid festival both physical and digital throughout June. The theme for the 2021 festival is ‘care’; Care means something different to everyone, this past year has made us know what is important to us in more ways than one, so the LFA is asking you to share why, what and how you care throughout the month using the hashtag #LFA2021.
National Days for June
It’s also Motor Neurone Disease and Bowel Cancer awareness month – every year Bowel Cancer UK asking people to ‘Step Up for 30’- to get sponsored to do 30 minutes of physical activity every day for 30 days during June, with the restrictions lifted on exercise last month, this should be easily completed!
Father’s Day is the 20th June and after a year away we are hoping to see the return of the tennis tournament Wimbledon which should begin on 28th June.
For all the foodies, it’s National Fish & Chip Day (4th), World Gin Day (12th), National Beer Day (15th), National Picnic Week (19th-27th), National Cream Tea Day (25th), all of which we’ll definitely be getting involved with. Can you recommend your favourite place for cream teas or the perfect destination for a family picnic, this is also a great time to highlight your suppliers or highlight your produce if you are the supplier! The Big Lunch (5-6th) is the UK’s thanksgiving weekend for neighbours and communities – a time where people come together to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better. For more information on how this year’s Big Lunch differs and how you can still get involved, head over to their website to get some great inspiration and free resources to be used on the day. Pictures would make great Instagram Stories or Facebook fodder!
It is also Children’s Hospice Week from 21st-27th. Finding one of these amazing charity awareness activities to take part in and relate it to your business would be fantastic! Share why you have chosen the specific activity to get involved with!
Health and Wellbeing are still high on the agenda this year, especially drawing light to self–care after lockdown. This month there are lots of moments to share in these topics or even highlight what your company is doing to offer support. Bike Week (30th May-5th June), Healthy Eating Week (14th-18th), and Men’s Health Week (14th-20th) are big topics, so see where you can highlight your products or services during these events.
It is also World Environment Day on 5th June, showcase all the fantastic ways the lockdown has improved our environment – clearer waters, cleaner air, brighter skies and how you’re continuing to contribute. Child Safety Week and Volunteer Week run at the same time this year (1st-6th), this is a great opportunity to showcase how you are supporting your local community in life after Covid.
13th June is Open Farm Sunday – if you own a farm or supply produce, this is a perfect time to get involved in open markets and display your finest produce to all that attend, and this also creates a fantastic opportunity to get your name out there!
Glastonbury has unfortunately been cancelled this year, but maybe you can get creative and make your own festival at in the garden with friends; at least then you’ll be in control of the playlist! Or share your hints and tips to ensure people are ready and well prepared for the next festivals, like Wireless in July and Reading and Leeds in August.
Enjoy being outdoors, seeing loved ones and taking advantage of all the things that have been restricted for so long, happy June!
