Through BankSA’s long-standing partnership with Adelaide Fringe we aim to help you make more of your Fringe and stretch your festival and Fringe finances further – and this year is no different.
We help bring a range of innovative programs to enhance your Fringe experience and it all starts with the Opening Night Parade this Friday night (February 14) when BankSA staff and volunteers will help warm up the crowds before it gets underway.
There’s also the ever-popular BankSA Support Act, where BankSA subsidises the ticket prices to almost 2,000 shows keeping the costs down to a low $10 each, as well as a host of family-friendly free concerts in The Garden of Unearthly Delights in Adelaide’s East End.
In addition, BankSA runs the hugely successful talkfringe.com, where arts lovers can see social media trends, review shows, and find out all sorts of Fringe-related information. A new and improved TalkFringe this year will focus on pulling in social media feeds to develop a leader board and show what’s trending, making it an even more effective tool in helping audiences know what they should see.
When in the East End, be sure to visit the BankSA Fringe Corner on Rundle Rd and East Tce. It’s got a Fringe Box Office, BankSA ATMs, general information and you can hang out, watch TalkFringe TV on the big screen and catch up with a host of Fringe news to help you choose shows to see. On Friday evenings Nova will run outdoor evening broadcasts from here, there’ll be giveaways and don’t miss the BankSA House of Credit Cards Challenge. Or just grab a pod seat and soak up the atmosphere.
This year we are also supporting a cool new Fringe venue – The Royal Croquet Club, brought to you by the team behind Little Miss Mexico and Little Miss Miami team.
The Adelaide Fringe is a truly brilliant South Australian event that is important to the cultural, social and economic fabric of the State, and BankSA is proud to play its part in helping the event grow and prosper.
A successful Fringe is one in which everyone can participate, and we’re delighted to offer these programs and be involved behind the scenes to help all South Australians to make more of their Fringe.
We’ll bring you more details of these and other initiatives once things are underway!
