Fremantle Heritage Festival May 26 – June 6 2017
IT’S newish heritage — Fremantle’s longest-running reggae bash is celebrating its 11th birthday at Mojo’s in North Fremantle – a venue bound to feature in future histories of the port city. Fisherman Style #132 will be a reggae dancehall event featuring mastas of rasta Crucial Rockers with the ever-present Grace Barbe (pictured), along with Earthlink Sound, Corby, Rastahyah and a host of others.
There’ll be pop-up food stalls selling Jamaican-style street food and it all goes off at 6pm on Friday June 2, with kids getting in free and adults paying $10 after 7pm. From 10pm it become adult’s only, with chill-out time coming in at a cool 1am.
IT won a WA Premier’s Award in 2004, and now you can get your hands on one of the stunning images from John Dowson’s book Old Fremantle, such as this one of the old Richmond Hotel by the traffic bridge (it was demolished in 1965).
The exhibition and sale of photos runs May 25-June 4 at Kidogo Art House, Bathers Beach. To attend the launch RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org.
