Fun Palace

Wokingham Library is joining more than 300 Fun Palaces across the UK to offer free and fun activities, celebrating culture in our community. Everyone’s an artist, everyone’s a scientist.  Activities are free (excluding materials in the Gemstone Cabochon Necklace Workshop).


Fun Palaces is an ongoing campaign for community at the heart of culture, with an annual weekend of events each October, led by local people for local people.
