RCC is back for another Fringe this year, again on the banks of the Torrens at Pinky Flat. It’s a triumphant return and there are some amazing things to see and do down at the Royal Croquet Club this year. Check out our guide to 10 Things To Do At RCC In 2018.
Big River Motel
Taking to the main stage at Big River are some of the best bands and DJ’s touring Australia. Head down from 9pm Fri and Sat to catch some of the best of the fringe taking over the main stage too — Briefs Factory are coming to play this weekend. Don’t miss it!
Roller Rink – Thanks to Gliderol & Nova 919
Live your own Roller Derby dream (no pushing please) with the Gliderolla Rink down at RCC open daily with pumping tunes keeping you gliding ‘til late each night. Boots and blades available to hire as part of your hour slot.
Wanna get into RCC for food, snacks, cocktails at Fruity’s (the beach bar), peruse the fringe shows or work out which night you’re gonna go neon in Neon Forest? New to 2018 there is no entry time at any point and you can buy tickets to all events — be it huge circus shows — or a gig, from fringe tix on-site.
Neon Forest – the party within a party.
Get your paint at the door. Neon is back. Entry is included with $15 Big River Motel tickets. We don’t wanna spoil the surprise of what’s in store — come party til late.
RCC Riverbank Markets
Stroll along the riverbank and shop local and interstate market stalls. Changing stall holders each week, you never know what you will find.
Tastes of South Australia
There’s something for even the fussiest eaters this year at RCC. All our food vendors are local SA businesses and they’re serving up the best in festival food.
A Simple Space return to RCC
Local circus troupe Gravity & Other Myths performed A Simple Space at RCC in our opening year at Victoria Square. After touring the world and selling out festivals from Edinburgh to Glastonbury, they’ve returned to RCC and performing nightly in the Grand Auditorium.
Wanna see the circus troupe who performed for Kate Middleton? Circus Abyssinia are the best of modern circus performed by graduates from Ethiopia’s circus school — expect mad tricks by the company who are good enough for the Queen of England.
For the first time at Adelaide Fringe, RCC hosts an 107 hour performance — Slumber Party. By Harry Clayton-Wright (Briefs) who inhabits Rebecca, a 16 year old uber-brat who refuses to leave her bedroom for 4 days. This free event was visible to the public during RCC open hours. Did you catch our FB live? If not, we’ve got a couple of hours of Rebecca below!
Tappingyandi Kaurna Ceremony every Saturday night
Each Saturday as the sun sets on the sacred land we gather on at Pinky Flat/Tarnda Womma — the land of the Kaurna people, Karl Winda Telfer and Yellaka unfold a new part of the Kaurna story. They bring fire, water, wind and earth together — the sacred elements of life, and invite members of the public to bring an item each week (gum leaves, feathers) to contribute to the ceremony.
Royal Croquet Club is at Pinky Flat in 2018, and is open Wednesday to Friday from 4pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11am. More info at their website here.
