Open Access: Thimblemill Fun Palaces Festival
About the Project
Thimblemill Library will be a Fun Palace for a day of arts and science activities with music, theatre, arts and sciences all under one roof on Sunday 7th October.
The Friends of the Library are volunteers who support a wide range of events and activities in the Library both during and outside library opening hours.
“We work with Thimblemill Library staff to help make the library a warm and welcoming place for our local community. We have commissioned Femtinos to lead a day of workshops, games, learning trails and activities about Healthy eating and Digestion; about Sounds and Innovations; and about Electricity.”
Theatre company ‘Told by an Idiot’ will also be popping in with a Build Your Brain workshop and two Science of Slapstick performances.
Syeda Shah, Creative Director at Femtinos, said: “Our team is really excited about being part of the Fun Palace at Thimblemill Library. We hope this will be the first of many fun-filled arts and science collaborations with the Friends of the Library.”
