It is housed in the heritage-listed All Saints' Anglican Church complex; the complex includes three performance spaces: The Arch and The Bar. Holden Street Theatres hosts performances at the Adelaide Fringe, the Feast Festival, the Guitars in Bars festival, as well as year-round productions by local and international artists, it is home to resident theatre companies Red Phoenix Theatre.

An extra performance space and two galleries are provided during the Adelaide Fringe; the head office is at the Thebarton Theatre, in partnership with Holden Street Theatres. Holden Street Theatres is situated in what was the All Saints' Anglican Church. Built in the Norman style the limestone and brick church was designed by Henry Stuckey.

Bishop Augustus Short laid the foundation stone in 1849, the church, opened on 23 June 1850. During this time a rectory was built near by to house the clergy for the church. In 1955 a gallery was built with a chancel and vestry being added in 1872. Due to lack of funds the church had to rely on donations from the community to add the chancel and vestry, with local Thebarton resident, John Taylor, donating a majority of the £272 needed. Several years the All Saints Church Hall was built nearby. Designed in a similar style to the church, it was opened on 28 March 1883; the buildings were listed on the former Register of the National Estate on 28 September 1982 and on the South Australian Heritage Register on 23 November 1989. During the part of the 20th century the church and rectory became disused until it was taken on by the City of Charles Sturt and became a space for lease. In 2002 the church and hall were leased by Weslo Holdings under guidance of creative director Martha Lott to be used as a theatre venue, while the Nature Foundation of South Australia took over the rectory as its head offices.

The original church was renovated in 2004 to become The Arch.

Mustacciuoli

Mustacciuoli is a traditional pastry from Naples served at Christmas time. Mustaccioli takes the form of a parallelogram, consist of a soft, cake-like interior, covered in chocolate. In recent years, they are many variations of mostaccioli sold in Naples, where the chocolate glaze may be replaced by a white chocolate frosting or icing sugar and candied fruit. Mustacciolis are sold alongside other Neapolitan sweets including Roccocò, raffiuoli and struffoli at Christmastime. Neapolitan mostacciolis were mentioned by Bartolomeo Scappi, personal cook of Pope Pius V as part of his pranzo alli XVIII di ottobre; the name "mustaccioli" was thought to be related to the use of grape must in older recipes. In fact the term derives from the Latin language but not from mustum, but from mustace, that is, laurel; the mustaceum was prepared as a cake for the wedding, wrapped in mustace leaves which gave aroma during cooking. Hence the proverb loreolam in mustera quaerere, that is: to look uselessly in the focaccia for burnt bay leaves.'Nzuddha: version in Calabria Mustazzoli: version in Salento
