The elegant industrial style is perfect for the bride or event planner who thinks outside the box, who has a vision to create a truly unique experience in an industrial venue.

Exposed brick, high ceilings, original historic elements and story makes industrial venues stand out and create that wow factor. Warehouse-like spaces gives brides and event planners a blank canvas to portray their unique style.

The East Workshops at Fremantle Prison is the ideal industrial style venue for weddings and large events.   Not only do you have the use of the large East Workshops but included in the venue hire is the Blacksmith’s Workshop connected to the space.

The Blacksmith’s Workshop was constructed in 1852, it was the first building constructed by convicts on the National and World Heritage listed Fremantle Prison site and has outstanding universal value recognised by UNESCO.  

The prison’s workshops provided activities and training for the prisoners. They also reduced the cost of maintenance, repairs, and construction by providing an in-house service.

The Blacksmith’s Workshop has undergone a roof replacement, roof plumbing repairs, and internal and external joinery in order to preserve this significant building for future generations. 

The additional venue space is ideal for a bar area and lounge, the possibilities are endless.  The space was used at a recent wedding styled with up lighting, bar tables and lounge.
