SCIENCE, art and magic will come together at Grays Library on Saturday, 6 October as the library becomes a fun palace with something exciting for kids of all ages.
The event starts at 11am and runs until 3pm, and will give youngsters an opportunity to have a go at coding with robotics, meet conjuror Paul Clancy, who’ll be making balloon animals, and explore forest arts and crafts in a special yurt set up especially for the event.
They’ll also be able to dress up with the team from Coalhouse Fort, learn cross stitching and knitting, as well as weaving with newspapers, and joining Thurrock Adult Community College for some arts and crafts.
Fun Palaces are part of a national campaign which will involve more than 300 libraries nationwide to create events that see groups of people work together, create together, have fun together as art and science combine to create a fantastic day of fun.
Cllr Deborah Huelin, portfolio holder for Communities, said: “This promises to be a fantastic day of events and there is truly something for everybody at Grays Library.
“The Fun Palaces initiative brings together the best of arts and science to create a great day out for families and communities.”
