In 1961, theatre director Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price had an idea to create a fun palace. This could be a ‘laboratory of fun’ where the community might learn and participate. Their brainstorm never materialised but as a tribute to the concept and in Littlewood's centenary year, well over 100 Fun Palaces will be sprouting up across the UK on the same weekend. And Herne Hill gets one - Brockwell Lido becomes a Fun Palace on Oct. 5th! So if you always wanted to swim with mermaids, paddle in a kayak, learn sign language, hear spooky stories, be a Bishop in a human chess game … and much more … this Herne Hill Fun Palace is for you.

The Luna Cinema's final poolside movie at Brockwell Lido for this season is on Sept 18th with the film selected by a public vote! Couldn't screen JAWS again - both screenings about a month apart sold out! This year's finale is 1985's The Goonies, from a Steven Spielberg story, featuring a young Josh Brolin and even younger Sean Astin. It was chosen from a shortlist including Cocktail, Teen Wolf, Coming To America and Big. Premium inflatable dinghy tickets are sold out but otherwise admission still available as of today. http://www.thelunacinema.com/brockwell-lido/4583851636
