Exciting Festival Theatre Redevelopment


The Festival Theatre is currently closed and will reopen in December 2017 with dynamic internal and external programming scheduled for January and February 2018.

The temporary closure of Festival Theatre will allow for extensive foyer renovations, facility improvements, and technical upgrades in the theatre. Adelaide Festival Centre’s revitalised northern promenade will also open in January with the Festival Theatre’s new entrance, new dining experiences, and Adelaide’s very own Walk of Fame.

We are also working on a children’s arts playground and new venue spaces inside and out.

The Festival Theatre BASS outlet has relocated to the Dunstan Playhouse for the duration of the redevelopment. Throughout the closure, all of our other venues are open with a full program of diverse entertainment – dance, music, theatre, children’s programming, and more. Adelaide Festival Centre’s OzAsia Festival returns on 21 September.
