The City of Marion is once again taking part in the Adelaide Fringe - the biggest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere.

Residents (and visitors) can get their Fringe fix on their doorstep with the Marion Cultural Centre hosting more than 30 shows.

“2022 marks the fifth consecutive year that the Marion Cultural Centre has been involved with the Fringe,” said Mayor of Marion Kris Hanna.

“This year the program includes an outstanding selection of experiences sure to entertain all the family.”

Performances cover a range of genres from music acts, cabaret, and theatre to dance and visual arts and design and taste testing experiences.

The program includes a selection of performances for children including puppetry, magic, and interactive theatre.

For the music lovers, local favourite Greg Hart is performing three shows - a solo acoustic evening, a night of Beatles Ballads, and a collaboration with wife Trish entitled A Taste of Bond, shaken not stirred!. Please note these tickets will sell fast.

Marion Cultural Centre’s 30-day program started on February 18 and runs through until March 20 and will take place in the Domain Theatre, an official Fringe venue located at 287 Diagonal Road, Oaklands Park.
