Fun Palace comes to Brockwell Lido in October!

In 1961, theatre director Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price had an idea to create a fun palace. This could be a ‘laboratory of fun’ where the community might learn and participate. Their brainstorm never materialised but as a tribute to the concept and in Littlewood's centenary year, well over 100 Fun Palaces will be sprouting up across the UK on the same weekend. And Herne Hill gets one - Brockwell Lido becomes a Fun Palace on Oct. 5th!  So if you always wanted to swim with mermaids, paddle in a kayak, learn sign language, hear spooky stories, be a Bishop in a human chess game … and much more … this Herne Hill Fun Palace is for you.  Visit the Fun Palace site:  Watch the BBC News clip which features Lido Fun Palace organiser Shelley Silas:
