Year-round, we welcome hundreds of regular visitors to our weekly community cafe for free tea and cake at Newbury Library.

Every Wednesday, we host free activities including English conversation, knit and natter, board games, a Parents Village and expert advice and other support from local services.

Educafe also offers activities outside the café including English language courses, wellbeing activities, workshops and meet-ups.

Come say hi and see for yourself!

Please visit us on a Wednesday at Newbury Library between 11am and 2.15pm.

You’re also welcome to stay for a free 30-minute chair yoga class which takes place in the Carnegie Room upstairs at 2.15-2.45pm
