What are the timings for the long table street party?
Tables can be claimed from 3 pm onwards on the day of the party. The table will be labelled with your name and table number. You are encouraged to decorate and personalise your table for your party so that it stands out from the crowd! The more original, the better.
Everyone is asked to be in place around their table at 4 pm for a social hour, when you can mingle with your friends and neighbours and admire their tables! Dinner commences at 5 pm. Listen out for the announcement to start eating your food!
At around 8.30 pm, everyone needs to pack up their own table(s) and deliver it/them back to Victory Hall. Please be as helpful as you can with the packing up process! It is important that the road is cleared in time to be re-opened for through traffic by 10 pm.
What do I need to bring?
We provide your actual table. You need to bring chairs, food, drink and all the decorations and accessories for your table. Bin bags will be provided, but please take everything away with you (including all your rubbish and empty bottles) at the end of the party.
What shall I wear?
What ever you like! Some people might want to come in fancy dress to be in-keeping with the theme of their table decorations. It's your choice. As this is a street party in England, please do bring suitable clothing for wet, chilly or windy weather though - just incase!
Where does the long table street party take place?
The Long Table Street Party takes place in the middle of Exminster. The main road will be closed from outside Victory Hall to Crockwells road between midday and 10 pm on the day of the street party. During this time, there will be a diversion in place for cars and buses. Please look out for notices about this nearer the time. Once the road is closed, the Exminster Long Table volunteers will set up the party tables along the road.
