Fun Palaces


Fun Palaces is both an ongoing campaign for culture by, for and with all, and also an annual weekend of events, where arts and sciences are a vital catalyst for community engagement and full participation for everyone, from the grassroots up.

Fun Palaces weekends in 2014, 2015 & 2016 have seen 572 Fun Palaces, made by thousands of local people, with 214,000 joining in across 13 nations.

We support anyone and everyone to make Fun Palaces – free, local events using arts, science, craft, tech and digital to celebrate every community and the skills and passions of those who live there.

The first weekend of October every year is Fun Palaces weekend.
