On 5 October we will be celebrating theatre director Joan Littlewood's legacy with a day of Fun Palace activity.
In 1961 Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price conceived the Fun Palace as a 'laboratory of fun', 'a university of the streets'. It was to be a temporary and moveable home to the arts and sciences that would welcome children and adults alike, based on Joan Littlewood's motto of 'Everyone an artist, everyone a scientist.'
We will create our own Fun Palace at The Other Place, in Stratford-upon-Avon, inviting adults and children to help us build it. Working with artists and creatives we will run a day of hands on activities on a drop in basis for everyone aged seven plus to take part in.
Further details of our Fun Palace will be announced here shortly.
