Lyrics Room was designed to highlight the beautiful Elder Park surrounds offering both an intimate feel, and the illusion of ‘open space’.

The Adelaide Festival Centre team delivers outstanding customer service and attention to detail, to ensure any event is a great success. We provide the dedicated services of an Event Sales Coordinator, who assists our clients in the organisation and coordination of their event experience while at the centre.

Adelaide Festival Centre’s talented kitchen team provides a wide variety of sensational food menus, showcasing some of South Australia’s best produce. Our talented Head Chef creates menus that are based on the seasons. This allows Adelaide Festival Centre to use the best seasonal produce that South Australia can offer. Our menu packages are designed to meet our client’s expectations, while offering flexibility and innovative ideas on food and beverage presentation.

Our point of difference – our chefs hand make our tortellini for all dinners requesting this dish as their entrée. This allows Adelaide Festival Centre to offer a truly unique product, which in turn, separates our venue from our main competitors. Under the direction of our Food and Beverage Manager, our menus are then accompanied by some of South Australia’s superb wines and beers. They are handpicked to complement the complex flavours of our menus. This allows Adelaide Festival Centre to deliver truly cohesive food and beverage option to our clients.

Located on Festival Drive (enter off King William Road), Adelaide Festival Centre car park is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with regular security patrols. Comparable casual rates are available and pre booked / paid spaces can be arranged.
