Halton Libraries is part of Fun Palaces 2018, a free, nationwide campaign for culture at the heart of community and community at the heart of culture happening over the weekend of the 6 and 7 October 2018.

Both Halton Lea library and Widnes library will be hosting a Fun Palace for a third year running.

Each Fun Palace celebrates the unique skills and passions of local people – run by, for and with the local community. If you have a skill or passion that you would like to share, please let your library know.

Since 2014 a total of 934 Fun Palaces across the world have been made by 24,000 people (‘Makers’) with 340,000 taking part. This year will be the fifth national Fun Palace weekend.

Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Libraries, Cllr Phil Harris, said: “Fun Palaces create events that bring together arts, science, craft, tech, digital, heritage and sports activities – but above all PEOPLE – to work together, create together, have FUN together, and in doing so, build our own communities, from the grassroots up.”

To find out more about Fun Palaces and how you can be a part of it, come along to our information session on Monday 3rd September, 5.30pm, Widnes library. If you are unable to attend but would like more information, please contact helen.osborne@halton.gov.uk
