Following the success of Mandurah’s monthly food truck fiesta, the Barracks Lane piazza is set to host a series of new live music events in the lead up to summer.
Piazza owners Cape Bouvard Investments are planning to bring live music, a pop-up bar, food trucks and entertainment every Sunday afternoon for three weeks to the newly landscaped space.
The initiative is a joint venture between the group and local activation organisation Shape Mandurah, the successful mastermind behind the food truck festival.
Through initiatives such as a music sessions, Cape Bouvard hopes to transform the small lane into a permanent community space, to activate Mandurah’s CBD and attract more residents to the city’s forgotten spaces.
Cape Bouvard operations manager Gary Godfrey said the vision for the public piazza to create a go-to location for community events could become a key driver in the revitalisation of the Smart Street and the bridge quarter.
“We are thrilled at the success and community support for the events we have hosted this year, which were initiated and driven by Shape Mandurah,” he said.
“Cape Bouvard would like to continue to partner Shape Mandurah and the City to build on this positive energy, with the ongoing support of the One Brighton residents and the surrounding businesses, which we greatly appreciate.”
The Sunday music sessions will be followed by further community events throughout November and December to complement Jamie Oliver’s Mobile Kitchen to Mandurah.
The Family Sunday Live Music Series will kick off this Sunday at 12pm and will include a performance of Perth dreamy indie pop band Woolly Mammoth.
There will also be food, drinks and children’s entertainment available.
The monthly Food Truck Festival will continue to bring exotic feeds to Mandurah on the last Tuesday of every month, with the next festival being a spooky Halloween edition held on Tuesday next week.
