Nan&Pop Day at Spare Parts

 

Hey boys and girls, tomorrow is a great day to give Nan and Pop a special treat and it is free!

SPARE PARTS PUPPET THEATRE  is having NAN&POP Day on Thursday and that means the oldies get in for free and you’ll only have to pay for the tickets of the children.

There is a very funny Roald Dahl play on, so don’t miss it!

Bookings through their website.

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.

The FAC promo reads:

LET’S ♥ 2018 WITH A SUPREMELY CHILLED EVENING OF SWEETNESS, MUSIC & LIGHT featuring AN INSPIRING BLEND OF LIVE REGGAE, SOUL, FUNK, AFRO, BLUES & WORLD RHYTHMS. It’s been 10 years now that we’ve been lucky enough to find ourselves in the sweet ritual of lazing around the lawns of the magical Fremantle Arts Centre on New Years Day and guaranteeing that we start the year with smiles, good times, respect and positivity. Being January 1 it is always the best show of the year so far and the perfect way to have a celebration that bypasses the New Years Eve buffoons, bozos and queues or to simply relax away the effects of your buffoonery from the night before. If you are doing a walk of shame there is no better destination than Fremantle Arts Centre late New Years Day afternoon to regain your sophistication and integrity and to relearn your hand-eye co-ordination and signature dance moves. It’s a cheap ticket with an exquisite selection of reggae, soul, funk, afro, blues grooves played live and with love by the best in town. It’s a great time with feeling. Don’t miss it!

MINI FREO FESTIVAL PARADE ON STEROIDS

Posted in city of fremantle, community, fremantle festival, Uncategorized by freoview on November 6, 2017

 

 

This year’s Fremantle Festival finale at Kings Square was delightfully controlled madness. It was loud, fun, fast, wet, mad and invigorating.

There was no festival parade but instead a kind of mini parade obstacle course around the Townhall, a bit like a parade on steroids. It was a blast!

Councillor Hannah Fitzhardinge and City of Fremantle CEO Phil StJohn got dunked many times and were really good sports about it.

There was a shopping trolley race with all the food in them going to St Patricks, the schools and community groups were there, the Wasamba drummers made a racket, there was music, the bar was open and Eat No Evil was a very appropriate foodstall for the delightful Sunday afternoon of smiles and madness.

It was disappointing that there were not many spectators, but the lack of a proper festival brochure can be partly blamed for that, as many people have been asking the last two weeks where they could get one.

FREMANTLE FESTIVAL CALENDAR

Posted in city of fremantle, culture, fremantle festival, Uncategorized by freoview on October 27, 2017

 

Freo Festival calendar

 

Well, well, well! The City of Fremantle has published a Fremantle Festival calendar at last. It still does not tell you what time the events are on, so it is rather useless.

Not sure if it is high-res enough to read it. I can’t because of the soft type they use, but here it is anyway.

Now it would be easy, and pretentious off me to claim credit for it, after my harsh whinge a few days ago, so let me just say that I am delighted Freo City has acted on community concerns.

Maybe I should become the first ever Dutch-born diplomat after all. ; >)
