Ever fantasised about attending an A-list dinner party? Well now is your chance. In support of Lifeline join Join Australia’s Biggest Virtual Dinner Party, Friday 14 August and dine with inspiring Aussies.

Since we have the whole virtual connection thing down pat, it’s time to get a little weird and wonderful. If this is the ‘new norm’ we are into it!

The evening will consist of a talk or two from some outstanding Aussies including Craig Reucassel, Magda Szubanski, and Will ‘Eggboy’ Connolly, some music from former Australia’s Got Talent 2019 runner-up D Minor and 2016 winner Fletcher Pilon, a live cooking masterclass by Atlas Masterclass chef, Charlie Carrington, and plenty of digital dining rooms to drop in and out of, before leading into a living room rave. All guests will receive a party box in advance which will include everything needed for the evening ahead, including booze and fresh, restaurant-quality ingredients for the masterclass.

CJ Holden, Co-Founder of  s p a c e – a group that strive for a more ambitious Australia –  said “Physical interaction in 2020 is so over-rated, so here we are having a virtual dinner party.  We’ve got a few surprises lined up but think even the most introverted of us are getting sick of the lack of social options available.  So, the virtual dinner party is a chance to try something different and have a few drinks, safe in the knowledge you’ll get home safely.”

In a big effort to bring some joy to all Australians going through tough times, the Biggest Virtual Dinner Party highlights the exceptional work of Lifeline who have experienced a monumental rise in calls over the past few months.

The dinner is hosted by Holly Ransom and Adam Ferrier of  s p a c e,  a festival-come-conference where ideas meet influence to make the world a better place. Partnering with virtual cooking masterclasses, Atlas Masterclass bringing the food, Musicians Making a Difference bringing the music, and Lifeline Australia to give a little back.
