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. Our next Fun Palace event will take place on Saturday 5th October 2019.

2018's Intrepid Explorers investigated the many realms of exploration, in partnership with The Curiosity Box, Oxford Festival of the Arts, and children's author Julia Golding.
