Fringe in the Flinders
The Flinders Ranges Council were excited to receive a grant from FRRR (Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal) and approached Bamboozled Productions to put together a concept with the aim to celebrate the local community while showcasing Quorn’s newly opened Performing and Visual Arts Precinct.
The inaugural Fringe in the Flinders celebrated the best of the famous Adelaide Fringe at Quorn and Hawker on March 18 and 19 respectively for an action-packed weekend of music, circus, comedy, aerial shows, street performances and shows in Bamboozled’s boutique circus tent, The Little Palais.
Held in Quorn’s newly opened Performing and Visual Arts Precinct (March 18) and Hawker’s Flinders Food Co (March 19), Fringe in the Flinders was the perfect way to experience the magic of Fringe in a bite-sized afternoon.

The Flinders Ranges Council acknowledges that the extraordinary success of our inaugural Fringe in the Flinders event can be attributed largely to the experience and expertise of Bamboozled Productions. The Bamboozled team went the extra mile to ensure performances were of a world-class standard, and suited the audience’s broad demographic. Bamboozled genuinely shared our passion for the project and delivered an outstanding event. We would not hesitate to engage Bamboozled Productions to produce a follow-up Fringe in the Flinders in the future.
