King Street Corner Pocket

4 - 6 July 2019 His Majesty's Theatre

Presented by WA Youth Jazz Orchestra

Perth and Western Australia host some of the most outstanding jazz talent in the country. King St Corner Pocket will showcase these exceptional local artists, emerging and established, in a fun filled festival where you don’t have to walk more than 50m to hear a new sound.

Festival performances will be 50-60 minutes long, with performances overlapping at different venues in and around King Street, offering audiences the choice to mix and match their own choice of music.

WAYJO will once again be using His Majesty’s Theatre (Downstairs at The Maj, and Dress Circle Bar), the InterContinental Perth City Centre, The Sewing Room and other spaces as activated performance venues... stay tuned for the festival lineup announcement soon!

General FAQs

What are the “late” tickets?

  • If you have seen one performance, you can still pop in to see another session that is currently running. Simply pay $5 at the His Majesty’s Theatre Box Office for your ticket to get late entry to a performance. You may only see 20 minutes, but for $5 it’s a bargain.
