During the first weekend of October, people all over the country are getting together in the name of art and science and setting up temporary Fun Palaces. The campaign is based on an idea conceived by the late theatre director Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price in 1961 to create a 'labratory of fun' for children and adults alike; a place where people could get creative, learn to do something or watch someone else doing it. For its third year, already 40 palaces have been planned to pop up across London, including at Brockwell Lido, the Southbank Centre (materials provided) and Ovalhouse, the Boundary Estate, Polka Theatre, Brockwell Lido, Stratford Circus, Crystal Palace Park and the Half Moon Theatre. There's no end the to skills to be learnt and fun to be had; to search for the Fun Palaces near you, visit
