Open House content

From world-class theatre to thrilling dance, incredible music and unmissable opera, the Adelaide Festival is committed to making sure those who are at a financial disadvantage can still access all the Festival has to offer.



We want the Adelaide Festival to be for everyone and are seeking out community groups and individuals who would love to experience the Festival but just cannot afford it.

In 2021, with the help of The Balnaves Foundation, we offered 1500 Tix For Next To Nix across a selection of Festival events for just $5 each to those with a current Pension or Healthcare Card.



Low income earner? We have great news for you. If you have a current Healthcare Card, Pension Card or full time student card, you can access Pay What You Can tickets to a selection of Adelaide Festival shows.

Tickets will be available one hour prior at the box office, only for specific performances.

Open House is generously supported by The Balnaves Foundation.
