Fun Palaces


On 4 October 2014, The Queen’s Theatre held Havering’s first ever Fun Palace! Fun Palaces is a yearly nationwide initiative and was born out Joan Littlewoods’s motto “Everyone an artist, everyone a scientist”. Fun Palaces are about fun and learning, participating and making together; a space where arts and sciences meet.


Our Fun Palace intends to serve the community of Havering with play, experiments, stories and games! For more information about Fun Palaces click the following link. http://funpalaces.co.uk/
