The month of March is always an exciting time in Adelaide with so much entertainment on offer, and once again the Adelaide Fringe will run for four weeks from mid February 2014. This is such a special time of the year in Adelaide as the city comes alive. There is something for absolutely everyone at the Fringe, from street theatre and circus acts to world class music, caberet, theatre and comedy. Be sure to get your tickets early to the shows you want to see as many sell out fast.
Every year the Play & Go team sets about to see as many shows as possible, posting our reviews online to help families get an idea on what to see. As always opinions differ from one family to the next, but that’s the beauty of an open-access arts festival as unique as the Adelaide Fringe. Anyone with a show, exhibition or cultural event is able to register and be part of Australia’s largest arts event with the result creating one of the most diverse arts festivals in the world, renowned for fresh ideas, spontaneity and fun.
