We like Food, we particularly like Syrian Food and we really like Syria. In July 2012 we decided to do something to show our friends in Syria that they had not been forgotten and to raise money in light of the growing humanitarian crisis. We mixed some ideas about; food, Syria, people around a kitchen table, merriment, experimenting, raising awareness and funds. The result was a Syrian Supper Club, it was the only idea which rose from the cooking pot and stayed intact. The Syrian Supper Club is expanding! With the help of some amazing volunteer teams, we are opening branches in West London, South London and Bristol, as well as continuing at the original E5 Bakehouse in London Fields. The Syrian Supper Club was set up by four friends and since 2012 we have held over 150 suppers, fed over 3,000 people and rolled a whole heap of falafel. Other Syrian Suppers have popped up around the world, in places like Cairo, Singapore, Washington D.C. and Istanbul. We were also recently named one of London's must-visit supper clubs in January 2018. The Syrian Supper Club uses a very simple yet powerful formula; by gathering people around a table and sharing food people are united behind a common cause. To date we have raised over £200,000 for our registered charity, The Hands Up Foundation's projects in Syria (charity no. 1156491). In terms of cancellation, we can offer a full refund on a ticket as long as you let us know at least three days before the event. This is to ensure that we don't end up with empty seats round the dinner table, and each supper raises the maximum it can for the aid projects we fund in Syria.

What hosts are saying about Syrian Supper Club
This was my first supper club and I am now desperate to do more! The nibbles / starters laid out on the tables when we arrived were delicious, and a great start to the evening along with a cocktail. The sit down main course and desert were lovely too. It was very touching to hear about the work that Hands Up foundation are doing in Syria, and where the money raised on the evening is going. Would love to come back soon.
