Stirling Fringe, 2-12 March 2018

From 2-12 March, Stirling Fringe presents a jam-packed and seriously fun pocket-sized pop-up fringe hub for families and kids set amongst the picturesque tree-lined Stirling Lawns outside the Coventry Library.

The Stirling Fringe is a world-class boutique Fringe Program in the heart of the Adelaide Hills offering a hand-picked program of local, national and international shows.

The 2018 program promises world-class entertainment across circus, comedy, music and theatre. Experience joy, wonderment and mayhem in two spectacular, fully air-conditioned, comfortable and custom-built performance tents, The Pocket and Rastelli.

Stirling Fringe offers an exciting after-school program for school children as well as shows starting from 11.30am for a younger pre-school audience, plus plenty of all-ages shows across the entire festival.

Keep the family entertained and stretch out on the lawns while enjoying the free outdoor music stage, grab a bite to eat and something to drink from local producers at the Fringe Hub.  A brilliant day out.

Forget the hustle of the city fringe and head to the Hills to soak up the tastes, sights and sounds of Stirling Fringe. Fun for all ages.
