About Fun Palaces
Fun Palaces create events that bring together arts and sciences – but above all PEOPLE – to work together, create together, have FUN together, and in doing so, build our own communities, from the grassroots up.
We will be announcing details of our main Fun Palace event taking place on 7 and 8 October very soon!
