Peak hour just got interesting!
Train commuters are in for a treat this afternoon as the Fringe is brought to Adelaide Railway Station.
Whether you’re stepping off a train or getting on one, you may be in for a big surprise, as artists and performers are planning to bring the Fringe to Adelaide’s trains by performing live––and for free!
The operator of Adelaide’s commuter train services, Keolis Downer, has partnered with the Adelaide Fringe to support artists who haven’t been able to perform on stage to an audience due to the restraints of the pandemic.
There will be a variety of fun performances, including The Borderers, award-winning cabaret queen – Victoria Falconer, Ukulele Dream Girl, Siobhan Owen – A Celtic Journey and Leather Lungs, a cabaret show.
Managing Director of Keolis Downer Adelaide, Robert Tatton-Jones, says the company was thrilled to partner with Adelaide Fringe. They also recently partnered with WOMADelaide earlier this month.
“We are proud to contribute to supporting local artists and bring performances to enhance our passengers’ experience,” he says.
“We hope to bring smiles on a few faces as people go to catch their train.”
“Our company is driven by the principle of ‘thinking like a passenger’ and we aim to be the trusted partner of choice for Adelaide rail commuters – and like Adelaide Fringe and WOMADelaide, we strive to positively impact the lifestyles and livelihoods of South Australians – now and for years to come.”
Keep an eye out today from 4pm until 6pm for some fun performances.
The Adelaide Railway Station is located on 125 North Terrace.
