Half Moon tries to fly youngsters to the real moon in day of Fun Palaces at Limehouse

The big ‘Fun Palace’ attracted 500 children and parents to east London’s Half Moon theatre for a science and space travel adventure day.
It was aimed at celebrating the arts, culture and sciences—but the youngsters were more interested in making space rockets and appropriately flying to the Moon from the Half Moon.
The youngsters packed the inter-galactic music and movement workshops and thronged into the ‘stars and planet’ art session, as well as the pop-up storytelling with artist Sally Kindberg.
Many had their pictures taken “in outer space”—actually, against a plain blue background with an outer space scene superimposed.
‘Fun Palaces’ is a free annual nationwide celebration of arts and culture driven by localism to encourage communities to work, create and have fun together.
