Everyone an Artist, Everyone a Scientist
Fun Palaces is both an ongoing campaign for culture at the heart of every community, and an annual weekend of action – arts, science, craft, tech, digital and sports events and activities – run by and for local communities. Fun Palaces weekend is the first weekend of October every year. The next Fun Palaces weekend is 6th & 7th October 2018.
Oxford Fun Palace 2017 - 'DNA Detectives'
Oxford Fun Palace 2017, presented in collaboration with Science Oxford, was a HUGE success. We were so happy to see nearly 250 visitors come along to our 'DNA Detectives' event in the Burton Taylor Studio on Saturday 7th October. Thank you to everyone that took part in our many creative and scientific activities and to our Makers who made the whole day an enjoyable experience for everybody.
"It was so exciting to see everybody having so much fun! My favourite part was the K'NEX Double Helix - we made a structure that was nearly 10 metres long!"
(Paul Simpson, Oxford Playhouse Learning Coordinator)
