Fringe in the Hills (Stirling Fringe)

Adelaide Fringe Family Friendly Venues

The team behind Stirling Fringe are back and this time they are taking over the gorgeous Adelaide hills with ‘Fringe & Hills’ Festival. Entertainment company and hills locals, Bamboozled Productions present their handpicked programme accompanied with our famous Adelaide Hills food and wine selection for just 10 days this April.

Friday, April 15th – Thursday 21st will see Stirling come alive with theatre, live music, comedy and magic, while the following weekend Friday April 22– Sunday April 24 will be Lobethal’s turn, with its own dedicated program of music, magic, cabaret and family friendly activations.

Leading the program charge is the critically acclaimed dance piece Egg by renowned Adelaide-based artist Erin Fowler. Egg is coming off two critically acclaimed Adelaide Fringe seasons and explores topics of fertility, motherhood, and choices, using dance, clowning, and a pulsating 80s soundtrack, it is one not to be missed. Magician, mentalist and Survivor star Matt Tarrant has performed all around the globe to sold-out audiences, and returns to the Adelaide Hill to mesmerise audiences. His show won’t fool you, rather it will have you believing in real magic again. He is only performing one night in Stirling, and it is sure to be a sell-out.

Having just finished a sold-out Adelaide Fringe season with five-star reviews, Endo Days is a hilarious and poignant performance using songs and stories to educate about the seriousness of endometriosis.
