Holborn Fun Palace

Come and join Holborn Fun Palace for a day of fun, creativity and surprises!

Fun Palaces is a free, ongoing campaign for culture at the heart of the community, with an annual weekend of events each October. Fun Palaces are not just for children, it doesn’t matter if you’re 4 or 94, activities are for everyone, and we need your help to make, sing, dance and experiment our way through a very fun Sunday.

Each Fun Palace celebrates the unique skills and passions of local people – run by, for and with the local community. The Holborn Fun Palace is no different, and will be made up of workshops and activities from local people, organisations and artists.

Whether you want to learn a new skill, meet other people in your community or just have a fun day out, join us!

We’ve searched high and low to make sure that there’s something to interest everyone, throughout the day there will be everything from art workshops, through to science and even yoga. Come and help make a digital orchestra, take part in a drama workshop or learn to knit.
