Be part of Fun Palaces 2016: Year of the Maker

Fun Palaces is an annual, free, nationwide celebration of arts and culture, driven by localism, innovation and engagement, with a core passion to encourage communities to create by and for themselves.

Fun Palaces shouts, sings, shimmies, stomps from the rooftops: arts and sciences, all culture, is a crucial part of human life, and they are truly glorious.

Inspired by theatre director Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price’s never-built vision of the Fun Palace; one venue for all arts and sciences, engaging and welcoming for all, Fun Palaces sees Makers across the UK and worldwide creating their own ‘pop-up’ Fun Palaces.

In 2014 and 2015 there were 280 Fun Palaces across 11 nations made by 5262 local people with over 90,000 joining in.

On 1 & 2 October 2016 we welcome even more involvement and engagement from even more people keen to make a difference.

Fun Palaces is not just about the weekend, it is about coming together to create, celebrating local people, local places and community in the everyday.
