ROYAL EXCHANGE THEATRE
FUN PALACES: OPEN DAY Sunday 5th October 2014
As part of Fun Palaces I will be hosting a drop in ring making workshop on Sunday 5th October from 12-2pm. ALL WELCOME!
The Royal Exchange Theatre will host a FREE OPEN DAY as part of FUN PALACES
This is your chance to get behind the scenes of a working theatre!
On the first weekend in October, venues across the UK will be hosting FUN PALACES events – bringing together arts and sciences, children and adults.
As well as going behind-the-scenes of the Royal Exchange, there’ll also be Family Friendly activities, workshops for all ages, the chance to dress up in the Theatre’s costumes, free entertainment in the Great Hall, and much, much more.
In 1961, Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price conceived the Fun Palace as a ‘laboratory of fun’, ‘a university of the streets’. It was to be a temporary and moveable home to the arts and sciences that would welcome children and adults alike, based on Joan Littlewood’s motto of “Everyone an artist, everyone a scientist.”
