'It was a talking, sharing, confiding, considering, thinking, walking, drinking, EATING, pasta-making, death-discussing, faerie-making, magical (literally), gathering. Meeting. Engaging. It was about conversations, nothing led or panel-debated, nothing decided beforehand to any huge level, just a bring them together and see what happens thing. It was bloody brilliant.'
- Stella Duffy, Writer, Theatre Maker, Fun Palace Creator
It’s chance to recoup with other minds, to eat lovely food, talk about subjects as diverse as shipping, nuclear power, art vandalism, land use, Victorian mind reading, refugees, keeping chickens, with other very interesting and talented people.
