Junk Orchestra! Part of Fun Palaces

  • The Word 45 Market Place, South Shields NE33 1JF (map)

Fun Palaces is an annual, free, nationwide celebration of arts and culture, driven by localism, innovation and engagement, with a core passion to encourage communities to create by and for themselves.

Fun Palaces shouts, sings, shimmies, stomps from the rooftops: arts and sciences, all culture, is a crucial part of human life, and they are truly glorious.

Inspired by theatre director Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price’s never-built vision of the Fun Palace; one venue for all arts and sciences, engaging and welcoming for all, Fun Palaces sees Makers across the UK and worldwide creating their own ‘pop-up’ Fun Palaces.

Join us for a fun filled day of music as part of our Fun Palaces Weekend!

Activities will include:

  • A range of free play junk instruments that people can drop in and play
  • Junk instrument crafting, including percussion items, bassoons, pipes and harmonicas
  • PLUS a chance to join the Junk Orchestra!
