It’s Fringe season again and Adelaide is already exploding with things to see and do. With a huge array of food and drink choices and more venues and shows than ever before, this year Gluttony should be at the top of your list.
In case you haven’t been down to the East End just yet, Gluttony has moved slightly to take over some of the real estate where Fringe Club used to live, sprawling down the left hand side of Rymill Park. With 12 venues nestled amongst the trees, Gluttony is the perfect spot to take your pick from over 140 shows. With everything from cabaret to kids, and highlights include Chris Henry’s Around the World in 80 Dates, Cirque Alfonse - Tabarnak, and Pussy Play Masterclass. There are also a few sideshows around, offering 15 minute shows for $10 or less.
There’s a great selection of food and bars on offer too. The eating area is located right near the front and there are plenty of local restaurants and pop up eateries to choose from. We went along on the opening night and sampled food from Gas Station and Gurkha’s Restaurant, but eagerly eyed off the Soi 38 pop up (you'd know the Pulteney Street Thai joint), and Chups, selling regular and sweet potato fries with a choice of salt and topping. As you continue to wander through, there are bars scattered throughout the venue, so you don’t have to go far to get your next drink.
During this time of year there are lots of things to attract your attention and Gluttony is definitely worth a re-visit. With lots of different acts and tasty food and drinks, it’s a worthy venue to spend a balmy Fringe evening.
