The Shadow Laboratory present a 20-minute performance based on an Aboriginal folk tale of a greedy frog at 11:30am and 1:30pm. Perfect for under 8’s and their grown ups.

After the show, learn to make your own shadow puppet from 12pm – 1pm and 2pm – 3pm. Suitable for all ages.

Join the Cardboard Orchestra and learn how to create your own electronic music using unconventional instruments. Suitable for all ages. Sessions last 30 mins and start at 11am, 12pm and 2pm.

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.

Or if fashion is your thing, try paper doll dress design between 11am – 3pm.

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
