Something On Saturday


Saturday May 2nd – Saturday September 5th
Adelaide Festival Theatre, King William St, Adelaide, South Australia

At 38 years young, Something on Saturday offers a wide range of entertainment for children each Saturday of the season.

Each week features a live performance and free craft workshop and with tickets for most performances at just $14.50 it is truly great value for quality children’s entertainment!

Something on Saturday provides a chance for children and parents/care-givers to be creative and get hands on together – you can see a show or join in the free workshop, or do both.  It’s up to you!

You can also see more information at the Adelaide Festival Centre website HERE and also the Families at Adelaide Festival Centre Facebook page – HERE.
