Come and join us on Saturday 2nd October to celebrate the opening of our new venue at St Mary Centre, Thornbury and learn about the services we are planning to provide in the future.

This will be a Fun Palaces event, where we are helping the community to come together to share experiences and learn from each other.  There will be free activities and stands from 11.00am to 2.00pm.

 ‘Fun Palaces’ is an annual, free, UK and worldwide celebration of community, driven by localism, innovation and engagement, always the first weekend in October.  You can find out more here

There are 3 ways you can get involved in our Fun Palaces event:

  1. Come along, have fun joining in and learn something new! There are activities through the day so drop in anytime between 11am-2pm.
  2. Help us make some community bunting. Decorate a piece of bunting and drop it off at
    JIGSAW so we can add it to the community bunting that will decorate the event.  You can print off template bunting here Fun Palace Community Bunting (this is double sided and you will need to choose ‘flip on short edge’ for your print options).  Or pick up a copy we have printed already from JIGSAW at 15/17 St Mary Street, Thornbury.
  3. Set up your own stand where you can share your special skill and help our community to connect!  Whether your skill involves arts, science, craft, or tech, Fun Palaces is above all about PEOPLE – to work together, create together, have FUN together, and in doing so, connect our own communities, from the grassroots up. If you are interested and want to learn more, then please register your interest here JT Fun Palace Event Registration Form by email to, or drop the form into us.


We hope to see you there!
