Fun Palaces at Contact Theatre, Manchester, 1 October 2016, free entry - Visit now

Get down to Contact this Saturday as it is transformed from top to bottom into a family-friendly creative paradise as part of the national Fun Palaces Campaign which celebrates culture for everyone.

It’s the Manchester debut for the exceptional immersive experience The International Kite Project where you can design a virtual kite and then be transported to fly and play in the winds with it at different locations across the world.  Eat your heart out Mary Poppins.

As far away from your average family fun day with a bit of token colouring in as you can imagine, Contact have embraced the Fun Palace idea head on with an impressive programme of things to do and learn.  Try your hand at being a DJ, contemporary dance, drama, movement and many other workshops and drop in sessions or make away to your hearts content with Origami and other participatory craft activities.

With treasure-hunts, games and other challenges we love that families can truly get under the skin of this brilliant building and what it’s about. And the fact that you can even draw all over the windows.
