It looks like the former Kulcha space above the Dome cafe on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip will be activated again soon as a bar/restaurant and music venue.
To be able for Mitchelstown PtyLtd, the preferred tenderer after an Expression of Interest period in March last year, to make the interior changes to the building, such as a commercial kitchen and sound proofing, the City of Fremantle will make required changes and invest in making the venue accessible for disabled people and build a lift and new stairs in Collie Street as well as a universal toilet.
It is a lovely space above the Dome and I fondly remember the many performances and exhibitions and the free Saturday concerts on the balcony, so let’s hope the activation and new entertainment venue will be supported by Fremantle residents.
Don’t miss this Sunday’s Fremantle Chamber Orchestra concert with Rudolf Koelman at the Fremantle Townhall!
Koelman’s sublime music always gives me goosebumps and tears in the eyes as there is so much beautiful intensity that vibrates the soul.

The beautiful sound of a saxophone came out of the Fremantle historic Whalers Tunnel this morning and what soul touching and melancholic music it is.
I wonder if the saxophonist is the same man who sometimes plays in the Fremantle Port underpass at Peter Hughes Drive.
