FUN FILLED FREO SUNDAY

GG

 

It’s a perfect Fremantle Sunday to do lots of things and connect with our community.

Start the day with our own Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road from 8am till midday.

From there up to Princess May Park where Clancy’s has put up Smoking in the Port with lots of BBQs, smokers, food tips and samples, chilli, etc. Starts at 11 am.

From 2-4 pm Bongziwe Mabandla will perform at the free Fremantle Arts Centre concert.

The South African has created a truly unmatched Afro-folk sound. Singing in both Xhosa and English, Mabandla fuses elements of hip-hop and dub with soul and traditional Xhosa music. With hypnotic vocals, heartfelt lyrics and beat-heavy grooves, he has the ability to move from melancholic melodies to crowd-surfing riot.

And from 5 to 9pm you can enjoy yourselves with the Harbour Sounds on the deck of the Maritime Museum on Victoria Quay. Free entry.

BIGGER GARDEN FOR NORTH FREO’S MOJO’S

Posted in city of fremantle, concerts, entertainment, music, Uncategorized by freoview on February 5, 2018

 

The very popular North Fremantle MOJO’S music bar wants to grow bigger and has applied to the City of Fremantle for an extension to its beer garden.

MOJO’S wants to extend the 72 square metre uncovered back beer garden by 57 square metres to make the total floor space of the bar area 212 square metres, to be able to accommodate approximately 250 patrons.

It wants to open a new bar in the existing beer garden and partly demolish some of the exterior walls.

The item is on this Wednesday’s CoF Planning Committee agenda and recommended for approval by the officers.

The officers recommend that the walls be constructed according to the expert’s Acoustic Report an that no music source, including sound systems and live performances will be permitted in the beer garden.

FREO FALLS FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND

Posted in city of fremantle, concert, entertainment, music, Uncategorized by freoview on January 3, 2018

 

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.
