For this year’s annual AGDA Awards, we’ve sourced a unique Adelaide venue with character and atmosphere which will allow us to showcase the best that South Australia has to offer. Queens Theatre resonates in Adelaide's mind as the place where great ideas live. At the corner of Gilles Arcade and Playhouse Lane in Adelaide’s West End, Queen’s Theatre is the oldest purpose-built theatre on mainland Australia.

As soon as the official part of the evening is over, this venue will allow us to carry on celebrating with friends and colleagues from around the country without having to disperse and relocate for an after party.   We’re pretty certain no one will want or need to leave!  Our aim is to keep people at the venue into the wee hours, and we can continue serving until 1am. For those of us who don’t need sleep and want to carry on partying - there’ll be somewhere to move on to.

The Social Creative, the team behind some of the most iconic pop-up events both locally and overseas, will stage this year’s awards event with a festival-theatrical like atmosphere which we believe will be hard to beat.


The awards team has designed an event that will showcase WHY South Australia is renowned for great produce and exceptional wine. Our beverage list for the evening will not only be all locally produced, but some of the best offerings coming out of this region.

Our focus is to showcase the best wines from our wine regions, each wine expressing the best varietal on offer. We have secured wine from each of the four main regions, ensuring this awards will have the best wine offering to date. We have also secured a boutique beer offering along with a cider selection for the event.

South Australia is also fast gaining a reputation as the gin state with a multitude of distilleries around the region.  Guests will experience the best gins currently being produced here in South Australia at our exclusive Gin Bar.


The menu takes inspiritation from our theme of hunting and gathering in the vast and beautiful landscape that is Australia. Preparing our menu is born and raised Adelaide chef, Andrè Ursini.
