Prior to the concert, step inside and join our experienced guides as we explore Fremantle Prison from its convict origins in the 1850’s until its closure as a maximum-security gaol in 1991. Take a visual journey back in time in the Main Cell Block where you can view life as it was for both convicts and prisoners. Discover how time was passed in the yards, while marvelling at original prisoner works of art. With a whipping post, gallows and solitary cells, Fremantle Prison is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent. Pray for redemption in the chapel and laugh as our entertaining guides show you the lighter side of Prison humour! Then get ready for the awesome MISSY HIGGINS live in concert under the stars in the courtyard of the Fremantle Prison. Ticket also includes Premium GA ticket with standing access to the area closest to the stage. Tours will be conducted in small groups and will begin from around 4.30pm. Ticket holders will be notified prior to the concert about the best time to arrive at the venue.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 

PATRONS MAY NOW BYO SINGLE FOLD UP CHAIR TO THIS EVENT.

Due to the overwhelming response from patrons about not being able to bring a chair, we have worked closely with our site crew overnight to determine what can be done. To that end, patrons may now BYO single fold up chair. Please do NOT bring large couch style chairs, beanbags, low back chairs or picnic blankets. 

We listened to you and we understand that you want to BYO chairs! Thanks for your patience.

WHY WAS THE SEATING ARRANGEMENT CHANGED IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Originally, we had to comply with COVID rules that prevented us from allowing people to bring a chair. The only option was to provide patrons with a plastic pippie chair. To us, that didnt seem right, as these chairs are thin and extremely uncomfortable. Also, we have staged many concerts at Fremantle Prison, and alot of them were “standing” shows (Xavier Rudd, Tex Perkins, Birds of Tokyo etc). We honestly thought patrons would prefer to stand (pub concert style) rather than sit in plastic chairs. Boy, did we get that wrong! The bottom line is that we have listened to our patrons and we have decided we will allow patrons to BYO single fold up chair. You do not have to bring a chair if you dont want to. You can stand in one of the areas towards the back of the venue.

PLEASE ONLY BRING A FOLD UP CHAIR SIMILAR TO THIS ONE:

high back standard chair
