    What is a Fun Palace?

    Fun Palaces are made by you and your community; arts, sciences and technologies are all welcome. What will yours be?

    The only guidelines are that each one should be free, local, innovative, transformative and engaging.

    The politics underpinning Fun Palaces



Fun Palaces are an annual event, combining arts and sciences, welcoming and free. Based on Joan Littlewood and Cedric Price’s original idea of a Fun Palace, they are made by, for and with local people – celebrating culture at the heart of our communities.


Theatres, gardens, tents, woodlands, shops, car parks, schools, libraries, swimming pools, public squares, town halls. Over 130 Fun Palaces took place across the UK and beyond on 4th & 5th October 2014.
