How long will the proposed new Gluttony event footprint be in the park?
In 2021, the Gluttony event setup will commence from 29 January 2021 and pull-down will be completed by 29 March 2021. The event period will be 18 February to 21 March 2021.
The 2022 event period will align with the 2022 Adelaide Fringe Festival dates which are to be announced. The total event setup and pull-down period will be 28 days.
Where possible, the event setup and pull-down will be completed in a staged approach to maximise usual community access to the park.
Why is the event proposing to change the Gluttony event footprint for 2021 and 2022?
The Gluttony event footprint needs to change from what was used in 2020 in order to work around the site of the new Quentin Kenihan Inclusive Play space, which is scheduled to be constructed ahead of the 2021 Gluttony event.
The proposed footprint has been selected to enable the event to maintain its current offering and produce a new experience centred around the lake, whilst still maintaining public access to the lake, new Playspace and kiosk.
Will I be able to walk through the proposed event footprint outside of event opening hours?
Key pathways will be opened for general public access through the site during peak usage times over the event period.
During the event set-up and pull-down periods, the event footprint is a work site and must be closed for safety and site security. However, where possible, the event setup and pull-down will be completed in a staged approach to maximise usual community access to the park.
How will I access the Quentin Kenihan Inclusive Playspace?
Access will be maintained to the new Playspace at all times during Gluttony’s occupancy of the park. The suggested access points for the Playspace when Gluttony is in place are indicated on the ‘Proposed Gluttony Event Footprint – 2021 & 2022’ map.
Additionally, the event will ensure access to the Playspace is maintained from within the Gluttony site during daytime event operating hours. From 5pm on event days, access to the Playspace from within the Gluttony site will be closed to ensure it is protected from unintended use when the venue is running. During the event setup and pull-down periods, the event footprint is a work site and must be closed for safety and site security. During these periods, public access to the Playspace via the Gluttony site will not be possible but it will still be accessible from outside of the Gluttony site.
How will I access the Kiosk?
The kiosk is situated outside of the new Gluttony proposed event footprint so it will be accessible at all times from outside of the event.
Additionally, Gluttony will ensure that access to the kiosk is maintained from within the Gluttony site during daytime event operating hours by opening a section of fence line that is located closest to the kiosk whenever the kiosk is open.
Outside of event operating hours during the event period, key pathways will be opened for general public access through the site at peak usage times. This includes the path leading to the kiosk.
How will the event protect Rymill Park/ Murlawirrapurka during its occupancy?
As part of the existing Multi-Year Event Licence Agreement with the City of Adelaide, Gluttony Food & Wine Festival Pty Ltd must undertake rigorous site management, centred around the protection and care of the Park Land environment. This requirement would extend to the new section of park that it proposes to use and includes but is not limited to the following:
Will the event go ahead even during the COVID-19 Pandemic?
All City of Adelaide event applications and approvals are subject to the Event Organisers complying with relevant laws, regulations, and restrictions in respect of the outbreak of the Human Disease named COVID-19.
The City of Adelaide and Gluttony Food & Wine Pty Ltd don’t yet know what the directions will be with respect to mass gatherings and social distancing in 2021. Preparations for events continue while we wait for this advice.
