never knew they needed, featuring a smorgasbord of world-class cabaret, fierce drag and jaw-dropping circus performers.
New to The Garden in 2022 is cabaret spectacular The Purple Rabbit presented by the creators of returning sell out show BLANC DE BLANC ENCORE which is sure to be a night of risqué fun and frivolity. For those who find a magic show pairs perfectly with a cocktail, Maho Magic Bar offers the best of both worlds with highly skilled magicians and bespoke drinks all set in a custom-made venue. Keeping the magic alive is Dom Chambers a Boy and His Deck and the mystifying Raymond Crowe bringing his latest masterpiece UNUSUALISM to The Garden.

Michelle Buxton, Co-Director of The Garden:
The Garden has always been a place for making memories and after another year of lockdowns and restrictions I think we will all enjoy the chance to make some new ones. This year’s line-up is all about variety. We are very proud to present Australia’s most outstanding comedians, some of the best homegrown circus, music and cabaret along with magic and interactive theatre that is sure to leave you dumbstruck with curiosity.
As always, the safety of Garden goers is of the utmost importance to us. We will continue to adapt and evolve our Covid-19 safety measures in accordance with best practice and the most current South Australian Government Covid-19 guidelines.
I encourage everyone to get out and support the arts in 2022. We look forward to celebrating 20 years of The Garden with you.
