If your stomach’s rumbling it’s a great weekend to head to the Barossa, or if it’s food for the soul you’re after, there’s theatre, music and words aplenty around in Adelaide this weekend.
With the slogan “be consumed” it might be prudent to hire a bus, rather than your car to take you home from this weekend’s Barossa Gourmet Weekend. There’s so much on, the event organisers say they can’t even pick a highlight, but there is a tour of the region’s Farmers Market, a cooking class with new Enoteca Casa Carboni as well as the traditional food and wine events at the wineries. Check out the program here.
There’s just one word that matters this weekend. No, that’s a lie. There are many words, all of them a part of the new festival Word Adelaide. You might want to jump on your Soapbox, and advocate for change like event manager Brian Gilbertson, or perhaps sit in at Her Majesty’s and find out what Little Britain star Matt Lucas really has to say.

Haydn’s famous Missa Sancta Nicolai or St Nicolas Mass will be played by a chamber orchestra with the St Peter’s choir the way it was meant to be heard, in a church.
