New seats released! Adelaide Festival Opening Weekend
Adelaide Festival 2022 opens
We have been shocked by the recent events in Europe and stand united against military aggression and war. Our hearts are breaking for the people of Ukraine and their families in Australia and elsewhere.
In a small way, we hope that our beautiful Festival might provide solace and reflection at this time.
We can’t wait to see you soon.

WRITERS’ WEEK starts this Saturday!
We can’t wait to welcome you to Writers’ Week on Saturday.
Like last year, in line with SA Health directives, the site will be fenced and there will be a strict capacity limit in place. Regrettably, we anticipate that we may have to turn some people away during the busiest times, especially on Saturday and Sunday.
We recommend arriving early to avoid missing your chosen sessions.
Our team is working hard to ensure the event is as safe and successful as possible. Thank you for being kind to our staff and volunteers, and for following their instructions.
