OLD TIME MUSIC HALL:
The Fremantle Town Hall will host some great old time music, along with a craft beer bar, communal furniture and more to bring out the charm of this beautiful space.

CHURCH OF HEAVENLY DELIGHTS:
St John's Anglican Church will bring laughter to your days, with some of the country's most hilarious comedians taking to the stage in the 1843-built church building.
