Trying out the Fun Palace idea in the Hub Space at last Septembers Doors Open Day
Our first ever Fun Palace at the Baths was on Sunday Oct 7fh 12 midday. See our entry on the national website funpalaces.co.uk
Sunday 7th October 12-4p.m.
This was our first Fun Palace, but we know how to have fun in our community. We invited everyone to come and “Explore Curious Patterns with Local Food Plants”. Free fun, green, sustainable,
Creative,healthy..whats not to like! We are a city centre location but used local natural resources from our allotments, with the support of Hotwells and District Allotment Association.
Indoors thanks to mild weather and saying a last goodbye to our gigantic sprung dance floor before the whole semi derelict listed building is repaired by Fusion Leisure. Ironically enough three days of continuous rain would have meant we have to hold it outdoors! We are a quirky place.
Fun here in 1901 when there was water in the pool
2 p.m Gardeners Question Time, 1p.m Gentle Tai Chi, 2 p.m. Jumpstart Kids physical activities,3p.m. Family disco to end the afternoon run by local teenagers. Plus all afternoon :Potato Prints, fun with vegetables!
Volunteers were needed. Students were particularly welcome to use their energy to help or even just jump around. Walking Patterns was led by researchers and students from both the University of Bristol and UWE We wanted to give a rousing farewell to our wonderful community space before it closes for four years..
