Get ready for the biggest little banquet, to be held on Burringbar Street, Mullumbimby, on August 29 from 7pm.

A single banquet table stretching down Mullum’s main street is planned, where 150 guests will enjoy a three-course banquet, featuring produce grown locally at the Community Gardens and prepared by Coolamon Tree Bistro, the Italian Joint and Mullumbimby High School.

Mullum’s Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the event, which will also be accompanied by organic wine and beer.

Organiser Jenelle Stanford says the event will be something new for Mullum.

‘It will be a real demonstration of community as hundreds of people all break bread at the same table,’ Jenelle says.

‘Everyone’s really excited about the banquet and we expect a sell-out event.’

Tickets are $50 per person and are available now from Mullumbimby Newsagency.

During the event, local traffic will be diverted to avoid the Burringbar Street road closure from the Council Chambers to the Post Office. For more information, contact Mullum chamber secretary Obi McDonald-Saint at [email protected].
