Madras Café is a group of over 150 volunteers from diverse countries, who come together annually, at WOMAD and Cosmic Puffin, to create, serve and sell authentic, vegetarian Indian food.  All profits go to Action Village India (AVI) to support “…their Indian partner organisations who work alongside villagers in some of the remotest parts of rural India so they can improve their lives, livelihoods and resilience”.

This year, with WOMAD cancelled for 2020, we embarked, in partnership with AVI, on creating a re-imagined online event – Madras Café Unlocked  – over the weekend of WOMAD (July 24th to 26th). 

This magical and informative event is now available at www.madrascafeunlocked.co.uk where you can see all the activities from the five stages over the weekend, including:

      • cooking displays and discussions
      • yoga and dance workshops
      • information about, and discussions with , Action Village India’s partners in India
      • classical and contemporary Indian music curated by Darbar

Please follow us and keep up to date on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
