Youth & Education content

Attending Adelaide Festival’s program of world-class performances and exhibitions opens up opportunities for students to develop as active and interrogative theatregoers and cultural critics and consider new perspectives on the world in which they live. This shared experience between teachers and students is a powerful way to inspire critical debate on big ideas, important global themes and motivate creative practice.

School ticket prices
Thanks to the generous philanthropic support from the Lang Foundation, we were able to offer special prices for schools wanting to attend selected productions at discounted prices in 2022. Full-time student prices were also available for most events, in addition to a number of free events and installations.

Socio-economically disadvantaged and Category 1-4 schools were able to apply for cheaper tickets or funding for transport to events, generously supported by our Youth & Education Program Partners. Find out more about Youth & Education Access and our Partners below>>

We'll update this page with information about school prices, bookings and teacher resources when the 2023 Adelaide Festival program is launched.


Youth & Education Access


Festival Connect is our inclusive equity program for schools established through the generous support of SA Power Networks, Diané Ranck and Festival Connect donors. Category 1-4 schools can access this fund to cover the cost of transport to the Festival. For remote or regional schools, it can be accessed to subsidise both transport and accommodation.

Applications for Festival Connect funding will open later in 2022. For more information, please email

Tix for next to nix

With the generous support of The Balnaves Foundation, Adelaide Festival can provide $5 tickets across a selection of events for socio-economic disadvantaged schools.
