GET involved in this year’s Farnham Fun Palace – a free, international celebration of community, bringing people together with arts, science, crafts and tech.
The event will be taking place on Saturday, October 7, and Sunday, October 8, from 11am to 5pm, at the Museum of Farnham and the Farnham library.
Based on an idea from theatre director Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price, the first Fun Palaces took place in the UK and worldwide in October 2014, when 138 venues, locations, communities and groups created their own local events.
Approximately 40,000 people participated in person, while 10s of thousands more engaged with them online. By 2016, the third Fun Palaces weekend, 292 Fun Palaces across the world were made by 4,800 people with 124,000 taking part.
Fun Palaces create events that bring together arts and sciences – but above all people – to work together, create together, have fun, and in doing so, build our own communities, from the grassroots up.
“There will be lots of hands on workshops for all ages and all capabilities, free, concocted by the people of Farnham.”
