The Bristol event, which forms part of the annual global Fun Palaces weekend, brings people together to share knowledge and learn new skills, hobbies and talents at FREE workshops in arts, science, research, activism, health, wellbeing, exercise, TV and film, and technology.
Tasmin Head, Fun Palaces Ambassador at the University of Bristol’s Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research, said:
The event is all about bringing together people who might not usually meet, helping them to make new connections and share skills in a fun and engaging way. Taking part in a Bristol Fun Palace is a great opportunity to share your skills, discover your city and get to know your community and some of the University’s fascinating researchers."

Fun Palaces' weekend of action returns for its sixth consecutive year of community-led activities, events and skills sharing. The Fun Palaces’ ethos is simple: there is creativity and genius in every person, in every place and acknowledging and sharing that creativity shines a light on the great work individuals and communities do day in, day out - and for which they are rarely celebrated. Fun Palaces supports communities to run their own cultural community events encouraging people throughout the UK and internationally create their own local Fun Palace, sharing the skills and passions of community members, whether they are experts or enthusiasts.
