Fun Palace at Ore Community Centre

Ore Community Centre Fun Palace

A day full of fun for all the family with lots of craft, exercise classes and hobbies to enjoy, including dance for older people, dance therapy, Zumba, drumming circle, print making, storytelling, chess, upcycling clothes, embroidery, Halloween theme painting, mosaic making and more. Graham Hodgson writes.

Ore Community Centre is part of Fun Palaces 2019, a free, international celebration of community, bringing people together with arts, science, crafts and tech, taking place on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 October.

Based on an idea from theatre director, Joan Littlewood and architect, Cedric Price, the first Fun Palaces took place in the UK and worldwide in October 2014, when 138 venues, locations, communities and groups created their own local events. Approximately 40,000 people participated in person, while tens of thousands more engaged with them online. By 2016, our third Fun Palaces weekend, 292 Fun Palaces across the world were made by 4,800 people with 124,000 taking part.

Fun Palaces create events that bring together arts and sciences – but above all PEOPLE – to work together, create together, have FUN together, and in doing so, build our own communities, from the grassroots up.

This is our first attempt at a Fun Palace in Ore and we are really looking forward to creating a lasting cultural event in the area for all to enjoy.


Ore Community Centre Fun Palace

Saturday October 5 from 11am to 3.30pm at 455 Old London Rd, Hastings TN35 5BH
