The Chairman’s Circle is a unique group of leading Adelaide Festival supporters whose influence, vision and direct engagement has an immediate and measurable impact on the Festival’s program each year.
As a collective, the Chairman’s Circle annual investment directly supports one prestigious work in the Festival program which is exclusive to the Adelaide Festival. These sponsored awarding-winning works include The James Plays in 2016, Saul in 2017, Hamlet in 2018 and The Magic Flute in 2019.
Members receive premium seating and hospitality on the opening night of this exclusive production.
The Chairman’s Circle enjoys a close relationship with the Chair and other members of the Board, as leading supporters of and advocates for the Adelaide Festival.
Members of the Chairman’s Circle make an annual investment of $10,000, of which $8,000 is a tax-deductible donation. Chairman's Circle members receive exclusive benefits to the value of $2000 with the balance of $8000 accounted to preserve the tax deductible contribution.
Membership is by invitation, all members are personally acknowledged in the Festival Guide, online and in the program for the sponsored event (unless anonymity is requested).
