FREO SATURDAY SERENADE

Freo

 

What a delightful Saturday in Fremantle, and more brilliant weather to come the next days. It even attracted West Coast Eagles player Andrew Gaff to wander down historic High Street to get over the disappointment of yesterday’s one point loss to Collingwood.

I took the photo of this energetic band in the High Street mall in front of a mural artwork.

HOW MANY MUSIC FESTIVALS FOR SOUTH BEACH?

 

The FPOL Committee of Fremantle Council will have to deal with the conundrum of how many festivals are sustainable for our Festival City.

Two event operators have requested to shift events from Port Beach to South Beach because of the uncertainty of the Port Beach erosion, but how many music and other summer events are acceptable to the South Fremantle community that is already getting the weekly Sunset Markets and a new tavern opening at the Sealanes site.

One also has to consider the beach goers whose local beach will be closed off and where parking will be a nightmare, so what is the solution?

Applications have been made for Sets on the Beach and Sundown Sessions, as well as For the Love music events on February 29, March 1 and March 7 so it would become very busy at South Beach.

City officers recommend that Council only approves one event at South Beach, but that would mean Fremantle loses two major events that would attract crowds of up to 5,000 each and that is not perfect either.

All events applied for are beach events so they can’t be shifted to Fremantle Oval or the Esplanade, and Bathers Beach is probably too small.

What will the preferred compromise be? Have your say at the FPOL Committee this Wednesday 6pm at the North Fremantle Community Hall.

Posted in bar, city of fremantle, concerts, hospitality, music, tavern, Uncategorized by freoview on April 24, 2019

 

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!
