Light is a new home for innovation, creativity and hospitality in the artistic West End precinct of Adelaide’s CBD. Our vision is to be a place where people can explore and discover, be amazed and delighted, whether they are here for a performance in The Lab, an event in The Light Room or a meal in our award-winning restaurant, Aurora.
Founded in 2021 by philanthropists Nick and Sophie Dunstone, Light has already hosted hundreds of performances and private events in our beautiful heritage bluestone building. Whether you are planning an intimate and stylish wedding, a cocktail reception for 200 or a conference or networking event requiring cutting edge LED screen technology, we can help with any private function.

"It's rare that every aspect of an event is delivered perfectly but your team pulled it off! It was a pleasure working with Olivia in the planning stages and on the night, her attention to detail was refreshing. The event was executed with precision from a tech perspective – big thanks to Ally and Fraser and also Simon Kither for the content – he is a genius! The food and service was exceptional, huge thank you to Adam for his professionalism and flawless delivery of each course. Thanks also to Megan and Chelsea who served us so well and of course lastly thank you to the Chef and his amazing team. Every course was a delightful revelation. It is an event that will be remembered for a long time. Thank you for building such an amazing facility." - G'Day Group
“We worked with the team at LightADL to host the Cityguide Adelaide app and website launch in late 2021. The space was ideal for us, both in terms of size, layout and of course the fabulous full-size digital screens inside, which we used to maximum effect for our main presentation. Being able to use the outdoor Beags courtyard for guest entry and outdoor socialising was also a real plus. The functions and AV team were very easy to work with and helped us pull off a seamless event. I would definitely recommend Light ADL to anyone looking to host an event with wow factor.” – Cityguide for The Lab & Beags
“The Lab at Light ADL is a unique and inspiring venue, our guests were awe struck by the immersive nature of the event we created. The giant screens helped us present a stunning display, but it was the incredible support we had from the staff at Light ADL that made the event a great success. We will definitely be back.” – Tafe SA
