Family Fun this Winter With Something on Saturday

Family Fun this Winter With Something on Saturday

Staying home wrapped up in a cosy blanket and sipping a frothy hot choccy in winter is nice for a while, but soon enough you’ll have kids crawling up the walls when cabin fever hits. That’s why Something on Saturday’s is returning to bring a whole heap of theatrical family fun to your calendar this chilly season.

This year’s Something on Saturday program will yet again delight 1 to 12 year olds with fabulous live performances every Saturday at Adelaide Festival Centre. From performances to exhibitions and hands on arts and crafts, this is every child’s chance to experience the transformative world of the arts. Kids tickets start from just $12.

Plus, every week there’s a FREE Foundation Kids Corner Workshop where kids are given the opportunity to let their creative juices ow and create wonderful arts and crafts, inspired by the show they attend.

Here are our top three must-sees from the program so far:

Tinkertime: The Broken Bubble Machine

4 May 1:00pm & 3:00pm

Join ABC Kids star Nay Nay for Tinkertime: The Broken Bubble Machine.
Join Nay Nay and her tinkering friends on board HMS ‘Curiosity’, a grumpy old bubble-powered airship that flies world-wide. But when the ship breaks down, the Tinkertime team must come to the rescue. This is a voyage of laughs and curiosity.
You may recognise Nay Nay, aka Naomi Young, as the voice of ‘Hootabelle’ from Giggle and Hoot. Tinkertime: The Broken Bubble Machine is a steam punk-style extravaganza with live music, dancing, fascinating machinery and bubbles popping everywhere.
Let’s blow our minds – it’s Tinkertime!
