Alan Emmott Centre
Host your special event in a heritage schoolhouse that dates back to more than a century. This beautiful and historic venue is tucked away in the heart of South Burnaby, and presents a remarkable venue for your next get together. Our catering packages present most everything you’ll need to make your day as seamless as possible. Plus, rental is included – or available at a reduced rate – when using certain CITY Catering packages for your event.
Attention to detail, personalized service and a gourmet menu are the benchmarks of every event at the Alan Emmott Centre. As well, our event experts are here to answer any questions you may have as you get ready for your special event.
Helen McConaghy has worked with the City’s Food Services division for more than half her life. In that time, she has seen the department grow to include several restaurants and an expert catering department - which she now leads. Along with creating memorable events for her clients, Helen says her favourite part of the job is helping wedding couples on their big day, “and knowing you’re making their day as special as can be.” Helen can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-205-3026.
