Fun Palaces is a national campaign for culture at the heart of communities where local people are invited to share their secret skills with neighbours at a free event that brings everyone together in a shared space.

Last year over 1,700 visitors joined in learning how to bowl a cricket ball, how to sing in harmonies, the art of graffiti, building a bug hotel and much, much more. We want to make this event even bigger in 2018 and get even more local people involved. Fun Palaces is an event for local people, by local people and we couldn’t do it without communities coming together and playing an active part in shaping the event. 

We’re starting our Fun Palaces campaign in June so look out for opportunities to get involved at Morden Hall Park, or get in touch as we’d love to hear from you: Throughout the summer we'll be decorating bunting for the event in our Welcome Space. Design your own bunting with the kids and then see it fluttering in the wind at Morden Hall Park Fun Palace in October.

Find out more about the national campaign here and like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to hear more about how you can take part.

Find ideas on where to park (our car parking is limited) here.
