Fremantle Prison is holding a community workshop at 6pm on Tuesday February 23 to gather ideas for new uses of the 160-year-old world heritage listed building.

They are thinking about concerts, festivals and even extreme sports, but recognise there might be better left off field ideas they could take up, so if you are keen to participate contact them on:  functions@fremantleprison.com.au or phone 9336 9205.

The building is already very popular and gets around 200,000 visitors per year. They have been holding art exhibitions and other events and the prison is now also home to a backpackers.
