Two cultural highlights for Fremantle this weekend. At the Shipwrecks Museum Spare Parts Puppet Theatre will start the Tom Vickers and the Extraordinary Adventure of his Missing Sock, while the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra will perform with clarinetist Michael Hodgkins in the Fremantle Townhall this Sunday.

….and more cultural greatness: Fremantle Arts Centre has confirmed its position as one of Perth’s most popular concert venues, with ticket sales for events over the next few months topping $1.2 million.
The historic venue will host Welsh rockers Stereophonics on 5 May, Angus and Julia Stone on 26-27 May and Vance Joy on 23-24 September.
City of Fremantle Arts and Culture Manager Pete Stone said combined the three acts had sold more than 15,000 tickets.

WA’s Jacob Diamond has recently emerged as one of the foremost singer songwriters in the west. His alt-folk sound is characterised with huge melodies and incisive lyrics, as he sings bold songs about love and death.

He will be performing at the free courtyard Sunday music session at the Fremantle Arts Centre today from 2-4 pm.

Now hoping the weather will clear up as it is quite dull out there with spots of rain.

STELLA DONNELLY IMPRESSES BIG FREO CROWD

The Fremantle Arts Centre courtyard was jam packed full on Sunday afternoon when hundreds of people came to listen to upcoming star Stella Donnelly.

The eery doomsday light, created by the Mundaring bushfire, created a moody ambience that went well with the excellent songs and singing of the delightful young singer song writer.

It is fantastic to hear such outstanding local talent, who will no doubt have a great future in Australia and beyond.

FREO FALLS FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND

Falls 1

Falls 2

 

After the very successful event at Kings Square last year the FALLS FESTIVAL is back in Fremantle this weekend, but this time at Fremantle Oval and on the Parry Street carpark.

The line-up is too big to mention here, so check the website and Facebook page.

It is very good to see the return of music festivals at Fremantle Oval as the contained site in the centre of the city and close to public transport and food outlets is perfect for it.

I understand there will be pass-outs so people can enjoy what Freo cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars have to offer.
