About the event

A day of fashion and fun

Fun Palaces is an annual nationwide celebration, throwing open the doors of our great buildings, to celebrate creativity across our communities.

Our theme for 2018 is Fashion and Fun. Don’t miss this very special day where our communities come together, young and old, and be inspired by something that plays a part in all our lives- clothing.

Join our community groups as they collaborate with fashion designers to stage free fashion shows, presentations, clothes swaps, and one-to-one fashion surgeries.

Learn how to maximise your wardrobe with minimal expense, how to dress for work and interviews, and browse our vintage and pre-loved fashion ideas.

Gain an insight into theatrical costuming, based on styles of the past, take part in a fun theatrical photo-shoot, and take part in making our Peter Pan Community Cloak which will feature in our 2018 Christmas musical.

Activities on the day will include:

  • Community fashion show every half hour
  • Jewellery making for all the family
  • Up-cycling demonstrations
  • One-to-one style surgeries
  • Theatre costume demonstrations
  • Photo shoot fun
  • Repair and mend service
  • Fabric and craft lucky dip
  • Up-cycling for work and interviews
  • Bring-in and swap clothes for all ages
  • Clothing documentary
