THE LONGEST DINING TABLE IN THE WORLD – RIGHT HERE IN DURBAN!!
Durban, get ready for our attempt to beat the existing world record for the longest dining table in the world, at the Greyville Race Course in Durban on Monday, 27 April 2015.
The Guinness World Record attempt will include serving 2000 diners on the table and it will include the participation of Durban restaurants, hotels, corporate companies, tourism bodies, clubs and charitable organisations as well as private individuals and families wanting to be part of the record breaking attempt.
Come celebrate Freedom Day with us and enjoy a full day of local kid’s entertainment, bands and musicians as well as delicious cuisine of the highest standards supplied by the renowned Eat Greek Catering Company. A number of well know Durban celebrities will be part of the event and Terrance Pillay from East Coast Radio will MC the entire event for Greyville.
Alan Vels Executive Director of the events company said “we want Durbanites to come out in their masses to ensure that the record we are sure of beating cannot be beaten by another City in South Africa. This is a big mile stone for Durban and we need everyone who’s proud of this beautiful City to be part of this historic attempt”. It was recently announced that the record will be challenged by the City of Tswane in August 2015.
The 2100 metre dining table with 2000 diners will be set out within the vast Greyville complex alongside the famous racetrack and companies and individuals will be able to reserve as many spaces as they wish to fill the dining space created. Independent restaurants, hotels, corporate companies and caterers will be able to reserve dining spaces for their customers and serve their own picnic style of cuisine on the day. A portion of the proceeds of the event will be distributed to various charities in and around Greyville, one of the chosen charities being “Feed the Babies fund”.
“We want to attempt something novel and unique for Durban whilst allowing the general public to be part of the event and for people to experience the wealth of opportunity the Greyville Exhibition and events complex offers. We will have national and international exposure of the event as it will be a first for Durban and will include many role players and private”. said Vels.
