Welcome to the Bread & Circus Festival Playground - located at Victoria Square and The Commons.

This Easter school holidays, you are invited to enter the brand new festival playground in the central city which will be transformed into a special world of busking, food, drinks and entertainment for the whole family and it’s free to enter.

Two big stages are set to burst with world-class entertainment Wednesday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm and we’ve got some exciting late-night shows in store for both Friday and Saturday nights. So mark your diary and get ready some big laughs, good times and signature Bread & Circus surprises!

The Bread & Circus Festival Playground will be open to all fully vaccinated patrons to enjoy. Just show your My Vaccine Pass upon entry and you’re good to go!

Why not make a day of it and take the time to explore the space, where fun activities, roving entertainment and crazy spectacle will complement the main-stage program. 

Set up your picnic rug and enjoy the delicious food from a wide array of local food trucks. Then wash it all down with a cool beverage from the Festival Bars. Don’t forget to bring cash to support your favourite buskers.
