Charcoal Lane is a social enterprise that provides guidance and hospitality training to young people, many of whom are Aboriginal. They are also passionate about telling the story of native ingredients and paying respect to Australian culture, land, and environment by creatively combining these unique ingredients into modern Australian cuisine.

Important information to make the most of your Convo experience

Are changes possible to the above menus?

Due to the pop-up nature of the event we only offer the two set menus below - unfortunately no changes to these are possible. Please read menus carefully before purchasing tickets.

When do vegan and gluten-free tickets need to be purchased by?

For these options please lets us know your meal request when purchasing tickets when prompted. All tickets for vegan and gluten-free guests must be purchased before Friday 16th August to allow us enough time to order the right quantities of food. If you are a vegetarian, please order the vegan meal when prompted. You (and a guest if you wish) will be sat at the ‘vegan’ table where a small selection of both the meat and vegan meals will be provided.

What if I am allergic to something such as seafood?

Again, unfortunately we just can’t cater to all dietary preferences. There will be plenty of food on the night and all dishes are served as a sharing banquet, so you can easily avoid certain dishes and still have plenty to eat.

Do people with dietary requirements need to sit together?

Meat eaters and now also gluten-free types may sit wherever they like. However, due to the shared banquet approach of Convo anyone requesting a vegan meal will need to sit together. We typically have one or two tables where guests receive both the vegan and meat meals, thus allowing for vegans and their non-vegan friends to dine together. If you have purchased a vegan meal we will contact you prior to the event to see if you’d like a friend to sit next to you.

Do you offer refunds?

Like most events we just can’t - small business life makes this extra hard too. However, if you do have a change of plans up until a week prior to the event we can try to re-sell your ticket but only once we’ve sold out. If your ticket sells, you are then given a full refund. No tickets are added to the re-sales list within one week of the event as we go into pre-event busy mode.
