Diverse Travel Australia has packaged an Adelaide Festival experience which includes accommodation in the CBD, and tickets to select shows. Our packages take on the theme of Australian stories, with the Festival’s centrepiece The Secret River, Kate Grenville’s 2005 novel, previously adapted for the stage, now being thrillingly reconceived for the stunning natural outdoor amphitheatre setting of Anstey Hill Quarry. The novel challenged Australian readers to rethink all they were taught about the birth of their nation. An unforgettable experience. Season 2 – 19 March 2017, Tuesday to Sunday performances.
Add to this, 1967 – Music in the Key of Yes, a concert inspired by the referendum of 1967 when Australians voted ‘yes’ to remove racist clauses from the Australian Constitution. Sung by a new generation of indigenous performers against a backdrop of archival footage, expect stirring anthems of struggle, joy and protest. Performers include: Thelma Plum, Dan Sultan, Leah Flanagan, Adalita, and more. One performance only in the Festival Theatre, Wednesday 15 March 2017.
Add to your Adelaide Festival experience with a weekend at WOMADelaide, 10 – 13 March, Botanic Park. A glorious journey of cultural diversity through the world of music, arts and dance.
