At Adelaide Fringe, we highly value being inclusive and welcoming.  We aim to ensure everyone can make the most of our program, audiences and artists alike! 

Booking Tickets

Audio Description Icon Audio Description 

Audio description is commentary for people who are blind or have a vision impairment.

Audio describers deliver a verbal commentary providing information on actions and visual elements, sometimes via a small transmitter. Users of this service can wear a personal listening device to enable full participation, depending on the size of the group. 

Audio description for 2019 will be provided for Tindo Utpurndee - Sunset Ceremony and Yabarra - Gathering of Light.
