Adelaide Festival Centre is the heart of the arts in South Australia

Established in 1973, Adelaide Festival Centre is Australia’s first capital city arts venue. The splendid riverbank venue hosts more than one million people annually within its theatres (Festival Theatre, Dunstan Playhouse and Space Theatre), restaurants, galleries and function spaces. As well as presenting theatre, dance, music, and exhibitions, Adelaide Festival Centre creates diverse festivals to inspire, challenge, educate, and entertain. Adelaide Festival Centre welcomes audiences of all ages, experience, and cultures.

Since 1988 Adelaide Festival Centre Trust has managed and operated Her Majesty’s Theatre, located on Grote St. Originally opening as The New Tivoli Theatre in 1913, Adelaide’s theatre for the stars re-opened in 2020 as a completely reinvigorated world-class proscenium theatre; redefining the theatre-going experience.

Adelaide Festival Centre is committed to supporting and co-presenting some of the world’s biggest touring musicals and work hard to ensure the delivery of shows that wouldn’t otherwise be seen in South Australia.
