Event description

Description

This is great event for anyone who lives near Bovingdon Green in Buckinghamshire. We hope you can be part of this April’s Safari Supper in aid of the Dallaglio RugbyWorks charity. We are running the supper at the same time as the Marlow Safari supper and then everybody winds up at fst’s offices in Marlow High Street for post supper drinks.

A Safari Supper? What’s that?

A Safari Supper is a dinner party with each course taken at a different person’s house. Not only do you move location within Bovingdon Green, but you have each course with a different group of people. Everybody dines in three homes in the area. All the host houses will be located in close proximity to each other and will be a maximum of 10 minutes walk apart. The dining tables are usually set for eight guests which means that you’ll meet over 20 different people during the three supper courses. When you buy your tickets with a friend or partner then the two of you will stay to together throughout the three supper courses.

Dining and donating

The Dallagilo RugbyWorks charity, set-up in 2009 by England rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio, uses rugby to transform the aspirations of young people. These are 14 to 17 year olds at increased risk of long-term unemployment, criminality and imprisonment. The aim is to get teenagers into sustained education, employment or training. This dining event is being organised by a Marlow mum, Juliet Howard, to get local people together and to raise money for this great cause. Juliet is cycling the Southern stages of the Dallaglio Slam and has set herself a target to raise £5000. All proceeds of this event will go to the charity as well as everything that Juliet raises through the cycle event. If you wish to donate please visit https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/JulietHoward

Book now.

You’ll get a three course meal, with each course taken in a different house, with different companions, and then everybody winds up at fst’s offices in Marlow High Street for post supper drinks.

We look forward to seeing you on 27th April for the dinner party of the year

How do I know where to go?

We will send you address details of where you will have your starter, main and dessert 7 days in advance. To make it easier to find, each host house participating will have red balloons flying outside.

I want to be a host. What do I need to know?

Everybody including the hosts will dine in three homes in the town. If you decide to host one of the three courses in your home you just need to make sure everything is ready when your guests arrive. For example if you are hosting the main course, then at 7pm you will have your starter at another hosts home nearby and then pop back home to serve the main course for your 8 guests at 8pm., (including yourselves). At 9pm you head off to your dessert course host to dine with another completely different group of guests. Best to leave the dishes until later!

To make sure that guests can easily walk between courses, all hosts ideally need to live near Bovingdon Green.... roughly from the top of Spinfield Lane through to the bottom of the Frieth Rd including Chalkpit lane.

We need hosts so please try to help if you can. It will involve a bit of time and effort but remember it will be fun and it's for a great cause. You can make your own food for your guests or to make things easier, Cook foodshop on Spittle Street have very kindly given the charity a massive discount and will provide the food for each course.

The host has to collect the course, defrost it and pop it in the oven ready for your guests. You won't need to pay for the food from Cook foodshops. It is all paid for and will be ready for collection the day before the event. http://www.cookfood.net/menu/entertaining/cook-for-a-crowd . You are more than welcome to cook your own starter, main course or dessert.

The host tickets are also discounted to £28 per person with a maximum of two host tickets can be purchased per house. When you buy your host tickets with a friend or partner then the two of you will stay to together throughout the three supper courses. Just select two host tickets for either a starter course, main course or dessert from the selection available.

As a host– we’ll tell you seven days in advance who your guests will be. We will also tell you where you’re going for your other two courses...be they either the starter, main or dessert courses.

I want to be a guest without any hosting. What do I need to know?

As a guest, your tickets are £39.50 per person including a three course dinner and post dinner drinks at Regatta House on the High street.. We’ll tell you seven days in advance where you’re going for your starter, main and dessert courses. You simply relax and walk from home to home for each course. You buy your tickets with a friend or partner then the two of you will stay to together throughout the three supper courses. All the money we raise from your tickets will go to the charity.
