Fun Palaces


FUN PALACE funding call!

Fun Palaces is a campaign promoting community at the heart of culture and culture at the heart of community, with an annual weekend of celebration created by, for and with local people.

This nationwide celebration uses arts, science, craft, tech digital, heritage and sports activities as a catalyst for community engagement with Fun Palaces of all shapes and sizes held in a variety of locations, ranging from libraries, shopping centres, schools, parks, village squares, community halls, swimming pools and many more.

This year the Fun Palace weekend of celebration is 6 to 8 October 2023, but Fun Palaces can happen at any time throughout the year.

FEAST is running an open application round for Fun Palace Activity here in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.

We are looking to fund small amounts of money (up to £200) towards the material costs of your Fun Palace. This can be for any materials your Fun Palace may need; we can be as flexible as you can be creative in making your Fun Palace.

FEAST is accepting applications now! We anticipate high demand and there is limited Fun Palace funding so we recommend Fun Palace Makers apply sooner rather than later.

We hope that people will be applying for what they need, we would want to make sure budgets are realistic and makers are not out of pocket but clearly the further we can make the resources stretch the better!

You MUST REGISTER your event on the Fun Palace website before applying to FEAST.
