The Fly by Night Musicians Club is a not for profit community musicians club and music venue located in the heart of Fremantle, Western Australia.about
On Wednesday evening, Fremantle’s Strategic and General Services Committee voted unanimously in favour of leasing Victoria Hall to the Fly By Night Musicians Club.The decision will see the Fly move to the beautiful, heritage listed building and stage community programming plus national touring acts in the 280 capacity space. “We are very much looking forward to this new chapter for the Fly” explains General Manager John Reid. He adds, “Vic Hall is a smaller capacity room, so we need to re think our business model but largely, we are just feeling optimistic and excited about the future ahead for the Fly”.

Last year the National Trust notified the Fly By Night Musicians Club that they would not be extending their lease in the Artillery Drill Hall and putting the building out to tender. It posed the Fly with a potentially grim future, given that Fremantle had been so much a part of the Fly’s culture.
“Moving to another iconic venue, just a few doors down the road means that we can keep the Fly culture alive in Fremantle, as well as utilising the beautiful Victoria Hall space & further activating Freo’s East End” explains Reid.
The Fly has one final week of events in the Artillery Drill Hall, with a jam packed program of local and national talent to close out a 28 year run at the venue. We would like to send a sincere thankyou to all the Fly supporters who have been incredibly supportive during this transitional time.
To the old and new supporters of the Fly; we look forward to re-opening our doors and continuing the Fly mission of creating a healthy community through music and providing a unique experience for artists and music lovers alike.
