Long Table Dinner tickets SOLD OUT!
After going on sale 9am Monday, this year’s Long Table Dinner sold out within two days.
This year we’re upping the ante with an extra long table stretching half a kilometre down historic High Street and catering to 1,200 diners.
But it’s not all about being bigger than ever – this year’s event looks to be better than ever. “There’s a number of changes this year,” explains Karl Bullers, Managing Director and owner of The National Hotel. “We’ve got Moore & Moore presenting Christmas Markets all along Henry Street featuring crafts, gift ideas, goodies and beverages. There’ll be more than 40 circus stars filling the streets and of course our team is very excited about our brand new menu of festive delights.”
St. Pat’s CEO, Michael Piu, says he’s in awe of the community spirit that makes the event such a success. “Last year we raised $85,000 for St. Pat’s programs. This year we’re hoping to surpass $100,000 which is just critical for us to reach more people in need. But it’s not even just the money at the end of the day – it’s the 200 volunteers who run the event, it’s the 100 local businesses who donate prizes or goods or services. It really is the perfect demonstration of Freo’s community spirit in action.”
And remember – if you missed out on a ticket, you can still get in on the action by coming down to High Street on the night.
“The festive atmosphere spills out into all of Freo,”said Bullers. “There’ll be Christmas markets, shops open til late and you can still catch all the entertainment, even if you’re not joining us for dinner!”
