The Garden of Unearthly Delights has an electrifying 2024 program! As the heart of the Adelaide Fringe, The Garden once again presents an eclectic mix of world-class acts across various genres, ensuring a truly unforgettable experience for audiences of all ages in the stunning outdoor surrounds of Kadlitpina / Rundle Park in Adelaide’s East Parklands.

The 2024 Garden program promises an unparalleled blend of entertainment, laughter, and awe-inspiring performances for audiences of all tastes and ages. With an array of international sensations, award-winning comedians, heart-stopping circus and mind-bending magic, this season is set to be The Garden’s most extraordinary yet! Tickets are on sale now via FringeTIX and www.gardenofunearthlydelights.com.au.

Leading the program for 2024 is Limbo – The Return. The award-winning smash hit takes centre stage once again at The Garden after its debut in 2013, which catapulted the show to 17 countries across the globe! Witness the spectacular return of this international sensation, promising an extraordinary blend of acrobatics, music and unparalleled entertainment with a brand new cast from six-plus different nations around the globe, incorporating over 50 instruments played live on stage throughout the show! Be sure to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Back for the first time since 2019, Cirque Alfonse presents Animal, a spectacular production that takes audiences on a surreal journey through farm fables. This reimagination of the agricultural world turns the farm upside down and the barn inside out, showcasing irreverence, virtuosity, and their familiar comic touch.

Prepare for a breathtaking journey as Mythos: Ragnarok debuts at The Garden. Named among the Best Theatre Shows at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe, this spectacle reimagines Viking mythology with professional wrestlers, offering intense fight scenes in a dark comic adaptation of Norse myths.

Also making their Garden Premiere in 2024 is The Gods The Gods The Gods – the 2023 cult-hit immersive theatre performance by the award-winning team behind international smash-hit shows Orpheus and Eurydice. This must-see is a joyful re-telling of classical myths and their Gods like you’ve never seen before!

After winning Adelaide Fringe’s Best Emerging Artist award in 2019, crowd-favourites YUCK Circus has been touring internationally, picking up dozens of awards, dozens of five-star reviews, and thrilling thousands of audience goers along the way. This crowd-favourite troupe delves into the grotesqueness of beauty standards, bougie art, and gender misconceptions through impressive acrobatics and aerials, delivering genuine experiences in full comedic fashion and making ‘gross’ topics as inclusive as they are entertaining.

Returning to The Garden in 2024 is ARIA award-winning children’s entertainer Peter Combe, performing an entire season of his new show NEWSPAPER MAMA – EVERY DAY! Combe is joined by fan-faves Children Are Stinky, Teeny Tiny Stevies and the Amazing Drumming Monkeys, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary in The Garden! And following a sellout 2023 season, Monski Mouse’s Baby Disco Dance Hall is also back again for another year, along with the Garden premiere of Monski Mouse’s Baby Cabaret, a live musical sing-a-long cabaret of nursery classics, song, puppetry and bonkers fun for 0-5s (and their parents!). 

On the announcement of The Garden’s most thrilling season yet, Michelle Buxton, Co-Director of The Garden, said, “Finally, we are back to a full scale program jam packed with international and Australian greats. I could not be more excited about The Garden 2024. I promise you a celebration of world class performing art like no other. We also have the greatest foodie offering ever. Plan a night or seven with us and enjoy every glorious Garden moment. You’ll never forget it.”

The Garden season will kick off with a cracking free launch party on Thursday 15 February 2024. All details will soon be revealed.
