Experience holy matrimony with a twist as The Inflatable Church premieres at Fringe

Get ready for a wild wedding as interactive theatre show ‘The Inflatable Church’ premieres at Adelaide Fringe.

Get ready to don your finest frock and join the congregation because The Inflatable Church has brought love to the City of Churches for its SA premiere at this year’s Fringe.

Running until Sunday the 17th of March at Light Square in the heart of the CBD, this isn’t just any church, and certainly not your everyday theatre show—it’s a must-see performance that has blessed Europe with over 5,000 happy ceremonies in the last two decades, and now it’s Adelaide’s turn to experience the love.

Imagine stepping into a place where weddings are anything but ordinary, where you become part of the matrimonial story—and every story is different. Guided by the eclectic ‘Love Army’, complete with whimsical vicars, flamboyant bridesmaids, dramatic Mothers-In-Law, makeup artists, and more, this is a wedding narrative that puts all others to shame.

This family-friendly event invites guests to participate for as little as $10, and whether you’re up for renewing your vows, walking down the aisle for the first time, or just soaking up the atmosphere as part of the congregation, this show is sure to get you in the celebratory mood. Plus, with over 300 types of costumes and a ‘glitterfication’ station, you’re sure to be dressed for the occasion!

But the festivities don’t end at the altar. Stretch out with Yoga with a Vicar, get your heart racing with Spandex workouts with Bridesmaids, and dance your way into matrimonial bliss. This inclusive space champions diversity and acceptance, welcoming all regardless of race, religion, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and disability.

With the Love Army at the helm, featuring directors Tamara Jones and Tristram Shackerley-Bennett, you’re in for a service that’s more than just vows and rings. It’s a satirical, surreal experience that’s garnered endorsements from celebrities like Kelly Osbourne and Warwick Davis.

The City of Adelaide’s support in bringing this unique experience to the West End and Light Square is a testament to the city’s commitment to creativity and community. The Inflatable Church is a call to all love birds, family fun-seekers, and anyone who’s ever dreamt of a wedding with a twist and is a place where love literally fills the air.
