Fringe Mandurah: performance meets local business

It seems that Peel Fringe festival lovers are in luck, as it has been announced that the festival will be taking to Mandurah from February 26-28 as part of Mandurah's 'endless long weekend' series.

Local venues have partnered with a variety of fringe shows of a multitude of styles, from cabaret and musical theatre to comedy and children's performances.

City of Mandurah mayor Rhys Williams said Fringe Mandurah would be a monumental event for the city and its local businesses.

"Mandurah is home to some of the best restaurants and cafes in Perth," Mr Williams said. "Fringe Mandurah will bring them together for a musical extravaganza, so residents and visitors can indulge their senses with a memorable show, and delicious food and beverages across our wonderful city."

Partnering venues will not only host their allocated show, but have the opportunity to showcase their food, beverages and atmosphere to audiences.

"Let's all get out in our beautiful city and support local businesses while enjoying some fantastic performances," Mayor Williams said.

Participating local venues include Mataya Eatery, The Bridge Garden Bar and Restaurant, Top Floor Nightclub, The Brighton, Flics Kitchen, The Oyster Bar, The Local Shack and Catch 22.

Performances begin Friday, February 26.
