We have made the unprecedented decision to close Fremantle Arts Centre this Friday 10 May, ahead of a sold out South Lawn show by global pop superstar Billie Eilish in the evening. This decision has been taken to guarantee the safest and most successful event for audiences, the artist and FAC staff.

The site, including Canvas Cafe, will be closed all day. Revealed Story Time and FAC’s scheduled Friday classes will proceed as normal. Students will be able to enter the building through the main gate, located on Finnerty Street.

Gates open for the concert at 6pm.

This is a one-off closure due to the specific production requirements for Billie Eilish’s show. There will be no disruption to FAC’s regular opening hours for all future South Lawn concerts.

Apologies for any inconvenience and I look forward to welcoming you back to FAC soon.

Jim Cathcart
Director, Fremantle Arts Centre
