5 Amazing Fun Palaces in London
This weekend sees the first nationwide (and FREE) Fun Palaces event – a celebration of open access arts & science!
Fun Palace is a term coined by the great Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price, meaning a ‘laboratory of fun’ and ‘a university of the streets’.
London is bursting with Fun Palaces, ranging from the familiar culture bunkers such as the Southbank Centre to more offbeat community shindigs. We’ve picked out five that appeal to us – check out the full listings to find your local Fun Palace…
The Ovalhouse programme is packed with amazing events, including a free performance of Boogaloo Stu’s 70s history themed gameshow Crimplene Millionaire (book in advance here), a lecture on the shaping of the universe, live music, curated walks and even a free Sunday Lunch.
