In the heart of Downtown Surrey, you can pull up a chair and have a seat at The Long Long Table for a special event this summer.

The Long Long Table is a unique event that invites people of all ages who live, work, volunteer, and study in Surrey to sit at the same dinner table and share a delicious 5-course meal together. Here citizens who would not normally interact with one another find themselves sharing experiences and getting to know one another, while enjoying live entertainment and exciting games making this a “friend-raiser” rather than a fundraiser.
