Boundary Estate Fun Palace

Boundary Estate Fun Palace

18 Club Row, London, UK, E2 7HE

5th October, 2019 - 11:00AM - 5:00PM

For the fourth year Boundary Estate residents will be working together to make a community Fun Palace, bringing a day of free arts, science and sport to everyone who wants to come along. In the past three years we’ve all been able to meet a ferret, conduct an orchestra, make a banner, debate with a Guardian journalist, play tennis, play a life-size operation game, discover local history, meet worms and take part in hundreds of other interactive art, craft, tech, science and sport activities.


Boundary Estate Great Get Together

Eight Great Dates

Eight Great Dates!


We've had a good meeting discussing our plans for a full summer of brilliant activities to bring our Boundary Estate neighbours and the local community together to build towards our fourth annual Fun Palace on 5th October - here are all the dates, we'll give you more details soon!   It all starts on Saturday 29th June with our Great Get Together bring-and-share picnic and afternoon of traditional games, catching up and meeting our neighbours from 1pm until 4pm.   Then we have a series of six Skill Share Cafes on three Wednesdays (10th July, 14th August & 11th September) and three Saturdays (27th July, 31st August & 28th September). All will take place from 11-2. They'll be like mini Fun Palaces, a chance to have a go at something new, share skills or join friends and neighbours over a cuppa and a biscuit or two.   Finally, we'll have our Fun Palace on Saturday 5th October, 11-5. A whole day of arts, science, crafts, history and sport.   All events will take place at St. Hilda's East Community Centre, are free and open to everyone of all ages.   All events will be made by Boundary Estate residents for everyone in our local community - if you want to help us make the days, have skills to share or are part of a group or organisation who wants to take part please get in touch!   Huge thanks to our community partners St. Hilda's East, Tower Hamlets Homes and The Young Foundation.

Fun Palace and Beyond...

We've been part of the Fun Palaces family since 2016 and for everyone involved it's built up our confidence and given us a lot of new skills. Since the start of our adventures we've wanted to use the energy of the Fun Palace and make similar free events throughout the year, and we're pleased to say that this year we're going to make that happen! We're registered to take part in the Great Get Together on 22nd June- full details are being sorted out but it will be free, for everyone and involve food, games and  being together as neighbours. We're also planning a short series of "Skill Sharing Cafes" - mini Fun Palaces - that will be held on one Saturday and one weekday afternoon each month over three months.  We'll keep you posted on all the times, dates and other details here, on our Twitter and Facebook pages. We're a small group of residents who really enjoy putting these things together, (on a really tiny budget!), and we're very grateful to have the support of our community partners St. Hilda's East Community Centre, Tower Hamlets Homes and The Young Foundation - not to mention other Fun Palace makers and the amazing trio at Fun Palaces HQ. If you want to help us make any of the events or contribute skills at the events please get in touch.
