Book a Workshop

You can also book a workshop with the Fun Palaces team. Fun Palaces workshops support organisations, venues, community groups and individuals to come together, to plan and develop useful links, skills-sharing and local networks.

While many people attending our workshops go on to make a local Fun Palace, we are delighted that the workshops also lead to other local connections and are key in supporting people to step up and take part.

We believe everyone can make a Fun Palace and our workshops welcome and support anyone, anywhere to create their local Fun Palace.
