On Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 October NTW TEAM will be supporting community group Positively Ponty with their Fun Palace. Fun Palaces are a celebration of Joan Littlewood’s centenary and her vision shared with architect Cedric Price. Joan Littlewood was an incredible woman - you read more about her here
, with Cedric she conceived the Fun Palace as a welcoming place where arts, sciences, education and entertainment were all linked. Over the weekend there’ll be hundreds of Fun Palaces across the UK, each one based on the needs and wants of that community.
Our Fun Palace will include interactive exhibitions, films and workshops from our partners including Astro-Cymru, Rhondda Housing Association, Sustrans, and local radio station GTFM.
NTW TEAM will be running a leadership training session, hosting Word4Word, our spoken word and poetry event, which will be headlined by Patrick Jones and running a new writing workshop led by Kelly Jones
. If you are interested in being part of any of these events contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everything is free, for more information on Fun Palaces see here
