Q: Should I book a table even if I do not know all guest names yet?

Definitely – space will go extremely quickly and we cannot guarantee anyone’s space. We deliberately limit capacity to just over 300 guests, so it is vital you book your space to avoid disappointment. Actual guest names may be supplied at a later stage.
