VAL trustee to to open Fun Palace

Fun Palaces on weekend of 5 and 6 October

Barbara Gray, Lewisham's Mayoress and a VAL trustee, is to officially open the Sydenham Fun Palace at noon on the 5th October at the Sydenham Centre. She will be joined by Deputy Mayor, Cllr Chris Best.
Speaking about the Fun Palace, the Mayoress said “I am delighted to support the Sydenham Fun Palace, where the community comes together to share skills, passions and interests in the arts, sciences and everything in between. Lewisham is at its best when it celebrates its diversity and everyone is able to thrive. Fun Palaces include and value everyone’s contribution, and work on the basis that everyone is an artist, everyone a scientist. I hope everyone in Sydenham will get involved and make the weekend of 5 and 6 October a celebration of learning, sharing and having fun together as a community.”
There will be lots of different activities going on at both centres, while some activities will be taking place simultaneously. Just turn up and choose which activity you would like to partake in! Take a look at some of the activities on offer so that you may best plan your day and not miss out!
