Creative Scene is partnering with Kirklees Libraries this October to transform our libraries into Fun Palaces

Experience your local library like never before in this celebration of arts, science and culture, with activities for all ages.

Immerse yourself in magical stories, try your hand at a range of arts and making activities or feed your thirst for knowledge with readings and talks.

Cleckheaton Library on SAT 21 october, 11am-3pm

Learn to make your own scratch ‘n’ sniff stickers and create optical illusions with Love Science.

Community Philosopher, Graeme Tiffany, asks you to drop-in, speak your mind and listen to others in a conversation exploring our opinions and questions relating to local spaces and communities from 11:30am to 12:30pm and 1:30pm to 2:30pm.

If being in the library is inspiring you to put pen to paper, add a hidden message to your writing in an acrostic poetry workshop.

Try out design skills in a range of workshops including wreath making, clay pot making or paper doll dress design.

Fun Palaces is a national campaign placing culture at the heart of local communities with an annual weekend of action on 7 to 8 October

“We believe in the genius in everyone, in everyone an artist and everyone a scientist, and that creativity in community can change the world for the better. We believe we can do this together, locally, with radical fun – and that anyone, anywhere, can make a fun palace” The Fun Palaces Manifesto
