The Tagore Centre UK is the country’s number one institution dedicated to promoting the work and life of Rabindranath Tagore.  The Centre, founded in May 1985, is primarily a substantial lending library of Tagore’s work and life. We also organise performances, seminars, exhibitions and master classes run by and featuring renowned artists and scholars from the UK and all over the world.
The main centre is based in London but we also have a branch in Glasgow. We are a voluntary organisation that relies on donations, membership fees, ticket sales, funding and publication sales.
Our biggest achievement to date has been to secure Rabindranath Tagore’s work in the National Curriculum for schools in England and Wales, ensuring that children of all cultures are able to enjoy Tagore’s work and life.
Library The Centre is primarily a substantial lending library consisting of books, journals, photographs, CDs and videos of Tagore and his work. The majority of these are in English and available to all our members. As a publishing house, we have produced books aimed at children, students, scholars and the general public – many of these are translations of Tagore’s actual stories as well as information about the man himself. All of our publications, which we commission and produce, are in English.
Performances and exhibitions In addition to our publishing work, we organise theatre productions, dance performances and visual arts exhibitions by renowned artists from overseas, as well as homegrown talent from the UK. Many of these are based on Tagore’s work and to ensure we reach all audiences many of these events are held in venues ranging from local schools and theatres to more established ones such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London.
Lectures, seminars and workshops The Tagore Centre regularly runs seminars, workshops and classes based on Tagore’s work as well as holding lectures given by distinguished scholars in their specialist fields with topics based on Tagore and his work. These are held at the Centre as well as other venues and all members are welcome to attend.
