Southall Photo Walk (market, tabla demo, temple and curry!)

The tour takes in all the colour, spice and characters of Southall market, then we visit the Southall temple and finish up having curry (possibly a more authentic one than on most London high streets) in one of the area's many restaurants. We also hope to arrange a demo and photo shoot of a leading player of tabla (traditional Indian drums). On a fast train, Southall is 12 minutes from Paddington.

Here's a link to info about Southall market: http://bit.ly/19LR3NH. Details of timings to follow later.

    Hi Everyone, I passed on some of your photos to Sukh - the tabla teacher - and he really liked them. He asked if there were any more shots of us playing - please let me know if you have some shots I can pass on. Thanks D
