Community Events

We want to celebrate all of the cultures and communities that make Talavera Junior such a vibrant, exciting and progressive place to be so we hold a wide range of events. You can keep up-to-date with our latest news to learn about each event as it happens. However, here is a list of our regular events so that you can get excited!
