Adelaide Festival Center Reviews & Ratings
Some renovations make it a bit tricky to get in but once you're inside and ready to watch the show you forget all that. Loved being able to preorder my drinks for the intermission... Great service.
I went there during a festival and the entire precinct was covered with so many food outlets it was a matter of what did I feel like because there was every country you could imagine. I also went see Mumma Mia at the festival theatre which was fantastic. The entire area is a beautiful sight, the lights, the atmosphere and the entire precinct was alive and really pumped
Lovely place in the most beautiful setting. Bit of a mess at the moment due to construction but it certainly doesn’t deter from the great experience
Brilliant venue. My only problem was the aircon was too cold for me. Distracted a bit from the show. But I find that everywhere in the summer. Otherwise faultless. Amazing acoustics. Good views from anywhere. Comfortable seats. Good food if you want dine first.
The performance of North by Northwest was an absolute delight. The Festival Theatre is an excellent venue BUT actually getting to the theatre by public transport, which should be encouraged, was horrendous on a day of such extreme temperatures. Surely, when the public are being encouraged to take care in such conditions, the underpass from the railway station should be open in the interest of public safety? If it can be used for such events as sports at the Adelaide Oval then it's obviously possible.
