Bodmin & Wenford Railway Fun Palace

Building, making, playing

Get hands on inspired by this year’s Bodmin-wide theme of building, making, playing AND the heritage railway location and awesome steam and diesel engines. Follow in the footsteps of Trevithick and Brunel with engineering and construction challenges suitable for young and old steam enthusiasts to join forces!

Be part of a town-wide Fun Palaces extravaganza! With venues across the town this year there will be a whole host of places and groups offering FREE activities and the chance to get hands on with sport, dance, play, art, craft, cooking, heritage, music – and possibly more! Let’s get the community together and have some fun. Don’t forget to visit all the other Fun Palaces happening in Bodmin, and take part in the quiz at each venue. Find out more on Facebook here.

If you’re local to Bodmin and would like to take part with a community group or as an artist, performer, maker, scientist or sportsperson please get in touch!

What is Fun Palaces?
Fun Palaces is an ongoing campaign for cultural democracy, with an annual weekend of action every October. The campaign promotes culture at the heart of community and community at the heart of culture. The weekend of action uses the combination of arts, craft, science, tech, digital, heritage and sports activities, led by local people for local people, sharing their own passions and skills, as a catalyst for community-led transformation, with active participation for all ages.

Spaghetti Bridges!

What do you think? Will you be able to construct something as impressive that will take weight - and even a train?!
