Community at the Heart of Culture, Culture at the Heart of Community
Sunday 6 October 2019
Century Theatre will join hundreds of Fun Palaces nationally and internationally set to explode with free and fun activities for all.
Join us for lots of free and exciting activities such as crafts to try, skills to learn, and new ways to think, play and create.
This Fun Palace was created by the Coalville community by sharing and celebrating the skills of everyone. Join us this weekend and master new skills from your neighbours, share hobbies with friends old and new, and celebrate the passions and enthusiasms of all of us.
Fun Palaces is an ongoing national and international campaign, nurturing and supporting the potential and positivity of sharing people’s enthusiasms, passions and skills with their own community. Fun Palaces bring together the cultural skills of those in local communities for others to learn and enjoy, and have previously included artists, scientists, theatre-makers, knitters, astronomers, magicians, engineers, gardeners, singers, conservationists, swimmers, geologists, dancers, triathletes, crafters and more, showcasing and sharing arts, science, technology, history, crafts, digital and sports. Fun Palaces has an annual weekend of events each October.
During the weekend, check out what’s happening elsewhere:
