Popular Fringe venue Royal Croquet Club is expanding to include fun for the whole family during this year’s festival season.
Since its debut in 2014, the Victoria Square venue has been a hot spot for partygoers, offering Fringe acts, music and food. This year the RCC have families in mind, promising more free entertainment and family fun.
Parents, stress no more! The RCC has extended their opening hours on weekends, opening from 11am on Saturday and Sunday. Keep the kids preoccupied with free camel and pony rides, a henna tattoo artist and pop-up volleyball court.
The program now includes Fringe shows for children with convenient afternoon session times. For the little ones (under 12) try The Adventures of Broer & Zus, 80’s Kids Disco, Brat Kids Carnival and Grumpy Pants.
Older kids will enjoy The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer, circus and jazz duo Scotch & Soda, the hilarious theatrics of The Pianist, and Charlie Caper & Malin Nilsson: Minor Miracles.
All that fun will work up an appetite. Every food vendor at the RCC now has a kid-friendly option on their menus, such as Doc’s Diner hotdogs and mini burgers, juicy corn on the cob and tasty tacos at Jamaican Me Crazy.
Whether you're looking for a night out or trying to keep the kids happy, there's something for everyone at the Royal Croquet Club.
Tickets to shows can be purchased through FringeTIX or at any Adelaide Fringe Box office.
Entry to the Royal Croquet club is free except for a $5 entry fee Friday and Saturday nights after 7pm.
Tuesday - Friday 4pm till late
Saturday - Sunday 11am till late
Monday 14th March 11am till late
