We believe in the genius in everyone, in everyone an artist and everyone a scientist, and that creativity in community can change the world for the better. We believe we can do this together, locally, with radical fun – and that anyone, anywhere, can make a Fun Palace.

As part of Fun Palaces, BedPop hosted various workshops at Bedford venues on 7th and 8th October 2017.

The Higgins Bedford, John Bunyan Museum, The Panacea Museum, Bedfordshire Libraries, The Fashion LOOP, Rogan’s Books, Quarry Theatre at St Luke’s, Slide Record Shop and St Cuthbert’s Hall saw over 2,000 visitors enjoy the event.

There were loads of FREE arts, cultural and science activities and workshops that the whole family enjoyed. A massive thanks to all our collaborators for their fantastic workshops!

From interactive theatre shows, hands on engineering, hat decorating, electronic drawing, optical illusions, drama and ukuleke workshops and so much more – there was something for everyone!

Save the date and watch this space – 6th and 7th October 2018.
