Who gets a seat at your dream dinner party?

Chatter

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, living or dead, whom would it be? This is usually a question that comes up in general banter at the dinner table, but always draws a diverse mix of responses.

The chosen dinner dates can fall into one of five categories:

  • Artists and performers
  • Religious and spiritual figures
  • Family or relatives
  • World leaders
  • Elite sports people and coaches

Usually decisions are based around some form of shared personal interest or involvement. For example, someone who has a keen interest in politics may have Malcolm Fraser for dinner, or a die had rugby league fan might have Wally Lewis. Other usual grounds also stem from curiosity to understand a particular era or to make sense of a certain figure’s life. Who is your ultimate dinner guest?

The most common answers typically include:

  • Jane Austen
  • Oscar Wilde
  • Stephen King
  • Kim Carey
  • Jesus
  • the Budda
  • Martin Luther
  • Grandparents
  • George Clooney
  • Hugh Jackman
  • John Howard
  • Sir Donald Bradman

So if you could have anyone in the world for dinner, whom would it be and why?
