Indulge in a unique dining experience as part of the Roaring 20s Festival and all that Jazz! on Saturday, February 1 – the inaugural Long Lunch in Leura.

When the Blue Mountains Charleston Challenge Guinness World Record attempt dancers have finished flapping, retire to a marquee on the road in Leura Mall, which will be closed to traffic.

Rain, hail or shine, this event will go ahead.

Dressed in your 1920s finest, treat yourself to a generous picnic hamper of delicious locally made and sourced fare including antipasto with locally grown vegetables from Leura’s Princess Pantry, cold cuts of slow roasted meats from the ovens of Vesta at Blackheath, fresh tossed salads from Wentworth Falls’ restaurant Nineteen23, cheese and fruit from The Carrington Cellars & Deli and a wickedly indulgent Josophan’s chocolate dessert.

Matching local wines and beverages will be for sale at Leura Cellars in the mall on the day.

Options range from a gourmet hamper for two ($160, includes $25 gift voucher for Leura Cellars and two seats in the marquee) to one seat in the marquee ($30, BYO hamper). Bookings essential.

Hampers are for sale independently of the marquee seats so, if you dare chance the weather, you may prefer to picnic on the grass in the mall.

Be sure to also don your best 1920s garb for a chance at prizes for best dressed lady, man, couple and hat as well as best dressed table, so also bring your finest picnic tableware and decorations.

The day will also feature vintage cars and plentiful live music (including Cookin with Gas 1920s band and the Blue Mountains Ukelele Group).
