Cathedral Square is a vibrant urban neighbourhood in the centre of Perth. Designed as an open, interactive meeting place and public square, the precinct introduces locals and tourists to arts and entertainment experiences, retail and dining.

The precinct is bound by St Georges Terrace, Barrack Street, Hay Street and Pier Street in one of Perth’s major CBD blocks. The site encompasses the historic State Buildings, Perth Town Hall, St George’s Cathedral, The Deanery, the State Administrative Tribunal building, the new City of Perth Library and the David Malcolm Justice Centre.

During PIJF we’ll be hosting lunchtime jazz on Friday 5 November with Assembly + Co.
