We welcomed 543 young people and adults to our recent Fun Palaces family fun day, which saw the local community come together to celebrate arts and culture in an exciting day filled with a variety of free events with an oceans and water theme.
Throughout the day, which took place on Saturday 2 October from 10am-4pm, there were a range of free events for all ages, including pop-up storytelling, music and movement workshops, treasure chest craft, sea creature art, plus a gallery trail exploring changes in Tower Hamlets over 30 years.
Fun Palaces is an annual, free, nationwide celebration of arts and culture, driven by localism, innovation and engagement, with a core passion to encourage communities to work together, create together, have fun together, and in doing so, build our own communities, from the grassroots up. It was the sixth time that Half Moon has been involved.
“After 18-months without live performances for family audiences, we were proud to be involved in Fun Palaces for a sixth year and were delighted with the passion and commitment of the local community to help make it such a memorable day,” said Chris Elwell, Director of Half Moon.
“Fun Palaces is about coming together as a community to create and celebrate and I am thrilled we achieved this in such an enjoyable way. Arts and culture play an important role in all our lives and it was wonderful to see over 500 people, young and old, get involved and enjoy themselves.”
