Clancys's

 

Fremantle’s famous and loved family pub CLANCY’S will be given a rare award at this month’s APRA Music Awards in Melbourne.

The fish pub will receive the Australasian Performing Right Association Licensee of the Year 2019 for excellent music citizenship.

This is only the third time that this award has been given.

In my good old pub days I spent a lot of time at Clancy’s on Friday nights and dancing on the invigorating music of the Zydecats on Sunday nights. It is a great and safe tavern with fantastic staff, so congratulations to all there!

FREO.SOCIAL, Fremantle’s latest music venue, micro brewery, distillery and tavern opened its doors at Parry Street to the public today, so make sure to go and check it out!

Millions of dollars were spent on renovating the 1896 built former Artillery Drill Hall, which is owned by the National Trust and was home to the Fly by Night musicians club before.

I did not get a look at the Entertainment Hall, where live music concerts will be held, so make sure to keep up to date who is playing when on the Freo.Social Facebook page.

The name is on the roof at FREO.SOCIAL where they are working hard on Fremantle’s newest and biggest music venue, that will be opening in just a few weeks.

It will not just be a nigh time venue but will be open during the day as well.

I am looking forward to seeing what the extensive renovations have created inside and outside the building.

Check out their Facebook page for concert dates, etc.

Fremantle is getting another good mural public art work on the new FREO.SOCIAL music venue building at Parry Street. The aerial perspective of the painting is fascinating.

Work is still continuing in and around the former Drillhall, but Sunset Events have scheduled many concerts in, starting with An Intimate Evening With John Butler on April 3.

It is still over a month away until the new FREO.SOCIAL music venue will open in the historic Drillhall that was home of the Fly by Night club before.

Sunset Events are still working on the development but have released a gigs guide of upcoming concerts and that looks pretty amazing.
