Victoria Hall

Arts Venue Fremantle


I am a theatre.
A workshop.
And a home to artists, culture and events in our community.

Victoria Hall is a performance space. A theatre. A workshop. It's also home to arts and cultural organisations, a bustling little bar and events in our community.

Built in 1897, she's now 124 years old and to step into the space is to step into a piece of Fremantle's history.

Her impressive red velvet curtain is ready to lift on a whole new set of memories so please stay in touch with us about upcoming shows or hosting your next event.

Access and diversity.

Every person is equal, welcome and safe once they step through the door. The hall should be affordable and accessible to all who wish to participate,  educate or celebrate.



For the building, for expression, and for each other.


Open: in thought and style.

By granting voice to many, we listen better to all.


Who we are.

If it pours within our doors,
this is the wizard at the gate,
to magic it into existence.

Host's Message

Bringing Victoria Hall back to life has been a slow and loving joy. Offering new life to this grand space, as we have fresh paint to the old walls.

We've had time to get to know each other. Pouring over the scars, the warped timber, the twisted nails, and the tender bits that need a little fixing.

All the while revealing the great potential that space like this affords us.

The bones here are strong and sturdy, the history long and the future bright, and now we're filling it with the most inspiring people.

We look forward to this new dawn and the fruit it brings us all.

Anything you need to know about booking the Victoria Hall is available here below, and feel free to contact us to discuss anything not covered within. But do consult this information before you do, so we can all be on the same page.

Rates, access info and venue capacities etcetera. Take a look before getting in touch with us to see if your work or event suits Victoria Hall!

Please Note:

- The Bar onsite is strictly NO BYO, so no, you cannot provide for your own events onsite, but our Bar team is very happy to accomodate your event needs.

- We can assist in providing access to gear, but no, the venue is not yet rigged to deliver sound and light for your event, these elements will need to be planned for and hired in.
