Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We’re hard at work making sure this year’s Long Table Dinner will be the best one yet! To help us create an evening for everyone to remember, please check below if you’ve got any questions about the event.

If you can’t find an answer to your question here, please email us at fremantlelongtable@gmail.com.

What are the two different types of ticket and what do I get?

This year the table will be in two sections.

  • PREMIUM SEATING – 3 course festive dinner with wine and beer – $185.00 (inc. GST).
  • PICNIC TABLE SEATING – either pre-purchase a meal voucher from one of our street food vendors for $49.00 (inc. GST) per ticket or bring your own picnic for $35.00 (inc. GST) per ticket. Wine and beer will be available to purchase from our mobile bars.

How can I make sure I'm seated with my friends?

The easiest way is to book all tickets in the same transaction.

If you’ve already booked your tickets separately, please email fremantlelongtable@gmail.com and we’ll do our best to seat you all together. We’ll be taking seating requests until Friday 9 November 2019.

I don't drink alcohol - can I get a discounted premium ticket?

Sorry, no.

Is there a ticket price for children?

Sorry, all tickets are the same price, regardless of who they’re purchased for. The picnic table seating is cheaper so may be your preferred option.

What's the menu? What about my special dietary requirements?

Premium Tickets:  To help you get into a festive mood, we’ll be serving a three-course Christmas themed menu. If you don’t eat meat, please select the vegetarian option.  We also have a vegan and gluten free option.

When you purchase your ticket, please let us know if you have any other dietary requirements such as allergies etc  fremantlelongtable@gmail.com

Picnic Table Seating: 

  • Choose a ticket with a meal voucher for a meal from one of our street food vendors.  Vegan and non vegan options will be available.
  • Choose a ticket without meal voucher to bring your own food to the event.  

 

Is the event BYO? What drinks are available? Can I buy cocktails?

All Premium tickets include wine and beer with dinner.

There will be bars on the street for purchases before dinner.  The National Hotel will be open throughout the event, and you’re more than welcome to purchase other drinks, including cocktails, from their bar.

There will be bars in the picnic table seating area where you will be able to purchase wine and beer.

Will EFTPOS be available to buy merchandise or extra drinks?

Absolutely! Don’t forget to bring some cash though to make sure you can enter our fantastic raffle!

What's the easiest way to get to the event?

Parking around the event is limited, so please consider alternative travel arrangements. Taxis and ride-sharing services are always a good option, or Fremantle train station is only a few minutes’ walk down the road.

Where's the best place to enter the event?

Once we’ve locked in where you’ll be sitting a few days before the dinner, we’ll send you an email to let you know where your table is and where the closest entry will be.

Can I request a specific location for my table?

With an event the size of the Long Table, it’s not possible to seat everyone exactly where they’d like. Rest assured though, there are no bad seats along the table!

What happens if it rains?

If there’s anything that looks like it will impact the ability of the Long Table to go ahead, we’ll be in touch via the email associated with your tickets.

The event may be postponed, but if it’s cancelled you’ll receive a full refund.

I can't go anymore? Will you refund my tickets?

We aren’t able to refund tickets, unfortunately, but you are more than welcome to head to our Facebook page and privately sell your tickets. There are always plenty of people who miss out and would love to make use of your tickets.
