If you are like us and leave things until the last minute, you still have until tomorrow night to check out the very cool artworks of High Tide 17. You can get involved and design your own nautical flags with messages fit for 2100 or become a citizen of the Commonwealth of New Bayswater with your own passport, a fun little island set up by Jessee Lee Johns in the flooded Princess Chambers’ basement (4-6pm today and tomorrow).

Time for the West End to come alive, well actually came alive last week but we’ve been away so we missed the first week! Locals know the deal: every Thursday night in July four venues – PS Art Space, The Navy Club, The Buffalo Club and The National Hotel host a great mix of musical performances.
Tickets: $15 available at the door on the night, no pre-sales

A $15 ticket give you access to all four venues on one night. Performances are staggered so you can spread yourselves around and get your ears full of music.
In our lunch break we popped into PSAS for the brilliant SpaceFolding SoundPlastic exhibition, part of this year’s Totally Huge New Music Festival. Walking through a labyrinth of light and sound you wonder – Are they connected? What do they mean? The exhibition has been evolving over the past weeks, including two performances which involved volunteers and the artist being wrapped in plastic. Read more →
The CBD is cracking this weekend. So much to see and do plus this year there’s great outdoor licensed areas where you can have a tipple. High Street and South Terrace have been closed to traffic and opened up to fun things.
We can’t believe it’s festival time again and as usual lots of great stuff on and things to get excited about. It runs all day from the 26th of October 2014 until the end of the 9th of November. The regular favourites still feature like the Norfolk Lanes Youth Festival, it will be moving to the Youth Plaza this year and as usual we’ll be off to see the blessing of the fleet and fireworks.
Here’s some of our picks…
I know the Street Arts festival draws the most crowds in Fremantle but I must say the Heritage Festival is my favourite. It begins today folks so start planning right now.
Andrew Christie is A Good Looking Man and he teaches people how to work with wood. You could say he makes something out of nothing as he commonly uses old scrap wood that no one wants and he believes anyone who is willing can successfully learn basic wood working skills. I went to a workshop that he ran in Myre Fremantle and I made a stool and now a new piece of furniture adornes my house.

What a perfect night for the Freo Festival opening tonight. It was especially perfect, because it took place at Kelp, Freo’s much loved beach bar at Kidogo Arthouse down at Bather’s Beach. Kelp re-opened for the occasion for one night only, tonight. This reminded us again of how much we want to keep this bar – for more than one night. We want to smell the ocean, while sipping a cocktail, having a chat with friends, watching the sun set over Bather’s Beach, and listening to some great local musos play. This place is perfect, this place is Freo.
