Code Club


Suitable for 8 years and over

Have you ever wanted to create your own animation?

As part of the Fun Palaces Weekend we are running an interactive code club where you will have the opportunity to learn skills to create something amazing!

To create your animation you will use Scratch – a program created for children and young adults to create interactive stories!

Grown-ups are asked to stay in The Word during the session.

About Fun Palaces

Fun Palaces is an annual, free, nationwide celebration of arts and culture, driven by localism, innovation and engagement, with a core passion to encourage communities to create by and for themselves.

Fun Palaces shouts, sings, shimmies, stomps from the rooftops: arts and sciences, all culture, is a crucial part of human life, and they are truly glorious.

Inspired by theatre director Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price’s never-built vision of the Fun Palace; one venue for all arts and sciences, engaging and welcoming for all, Fun Palaces sees Makers across the UK and worldwide creating their own ‘pop-up’ Fun Palaces.

Between 2014, 2015 and 2016 there have been 572 Fun Palaces across 11 nations made by over 10,000 local Makers with 214,000 joining in!

On 7 & 8 October 2017 we welcome even more involvement and engagement from even more people keen to make a difference.

Fun Palaces is not just about the weekend, it is about coming together to create, celebrating local people, local places and community in the everyday.
