SPOOKY GHOSTS AT FREMANTLE PRISON

 

 

Genrefonix is back in Fremante with another amazing show in February, after four sold-out Frankestone shows in the Roundhouse late last year.

Ghosts is back at Fremantle Prison on February 9 after sellout Fringe shows in 2018.

Join the outstanding actors and musicians in the atmospheric Fremantle Prison Theatre for a fictional multimedia show featuring original horror music and soundscapes. All performed live alongside compelling imagery of Fremantle’s architecture and its ghosts.

See some of WA’s most haunted buildings brought to life through emotive tunes, eerie sound effects and imaginative ghost portraits.

The original theatre screen used for prisoners will fire up once again, bringing history and imagination to life. Each ghost has a story, each building a unique ambiance. Share in the power and passion of the supernatural landscape of Fremantle. Spooky fun! Rockin’ tunes!

There are three shows on February 9, at 7pm, 8.15pm and 9.30pm so don’t miss out!

Tickets can be booked on the Fringeworld website.

NEW BARS FOR FREO’S OLD SYNAGOGUE

 

 

 

 

New plans for the former Fremantle synagogue on the corner of South Terrace and Parry Street near Fremantle Oval have come to light, but still depend on Fremantle Council planning approval and a liquor license.

The Old Synagogue would offer a beer garden on three levels, with a rooftop bar, while the restaurant would offer fine dining with an Asian twist to it.

The basement bar of The Old Synagogue will be offering cocktails in a more relaxed and intimate setting, while the street-level bar would embrace the Freo vibes and offer craft beer and pub food.

The City of Fremantle is currently in the process to develop Fremantle Oval with a residential and commercial part and the relocation of the East Fremantle Football Club to the oval, so the new venue, opposite the Norfolk Hotel might well become an additional attraction for the precinct.

Already plans have been approved for a small boutique hotel and tavern at the Warders Cottages directly east of the Fremantle Markets, and another hotel, tavern and entertainment centre by Silverleaf Investments has been approved for the former police and justice complex and Warders Cottages also in Henderson Street. Just east of that development the former Drillhall has been turned into The Social Club live music venue by Sunset Events, that will open in March this year.

There is a lot going on in Fremantle, and that is a good thing, but I am a bit worried that there is too much concentration on making it into an alcohol-related entertainment centre.

DUKE OF GEORGE BAR OPENS IN EAST FREMANTLE

Posted in bar, city of fremantle, east fremantle, entertainment, heritage, hospitality, music, Uncategorized by freoview on January 8, 2019

 

 

The grand opening of the new Duke of George bar in the epic former Brush Factory development and Lauder&Howard antiques building in George Street in East Fremantle will be on January 18 with a three-day feast of blues and jazz as part of the Fringeworld festival season.

The renovation of the heritage-listed building and new residential additions, opposite the old Royal George hotel, took just about forever but is finally nearing completion.

The future of the Royal George is still not known as developers Saracen are considering the viability of a seven-storey residential building behind it, when they wanted three times that height.

MARKET AND MUSIC FREO SUNDAY FUN

 

gg-11

 

It is sooooo much nicer to go food shopping at the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market than going to a sterile shopping centre, and the last one of the year is on this Sunday December 23 from 8am till midday.

So get on your airconditioned bikes or in your hot cars and head to Fremantle College on Lefroy Road for all that fresh produce and yummy breakfast offers.

And from 2-4pm sit in the shade of the plane trees in the courtyard of the Fremantle Arts Centre for the free concert by The Last Fair Deal with powerhouse lead singer Ofa Fotu and listen to the great blues and soul.

PANTS DOWN FOR SEXUAL RESEARCH AT FREO’S FALLS DOWNTOWN

Posted in city of fremantle, concert, culture, entertainment, festival, health, state government, Uncategorized by freoview on December 20, 2018

 

Falls festival

 

Visitors to next year’s Fremantle Falls Downtown festival will be offered high-class toilets, if they agree to take a test for sexually transmitted infections.

The WA State Government is offering the free test because of a significant increase in cases of chlamydia and gonorrhoea.

More that 16,000 young people are expected to come to Freo for the two-day festival on January 5 and 6, so the State Government wanted to target the 16-24 year-old, which is the group with the highest reports of chlamydia.

The Department of Health is sponsoring the Falls Festival with $ 50,000.
