Sit down to a meal by Atlas Dining chef Charlie Carrington, while you laugh and sing along to live entertainment streamed into your living room. All proceeds from the event will go to Lifeline.

To support Australians during a difficult year, the team behind ideas festival Space is hosting a virtual dinner party with guests including Atlas Dining chef Charlie Carrington (who’ll also be doing cooking); comedians and activists Magda Szubanski and Craig Reucassel; Will “Egg Boy” Connolly, who you may remember for egging a right-wing senator; and inspiring speakers such as world-champion surfer Layne Beachley.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to crisis hotline Lifeline, which provides 24-hour mental-health support nationwide.

Carrington and his team will be putting together dinner boxes to prepare at home.

On the menu so far is kung pao chicken (a spicy Chinese-style stir-fry) with native Australian mountain pepper and saltbush, followed by chocolate smash with berries and lemon myrtle for dessert. There’ll also be a vegetarian option.

You'll eat your meal accompanied by live music and entertainment, plus cooking tips from Carringtom.

Dinner costs $155 for one or $195 for two – you can also pay it forward and buy a ticket for someone else.

Meal boxes can be delived to Victoria, New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Tasmania, South Australia and Queensland. From 6pm to 9.30pm.
