About Canley Popupcafe

Canley Pop Up Café is informal cafe style get-together offering friendly space for everyone to come and talk, to meet people from different backgrounds and share stories. Events are held at Canley Community Centre and in Prior Deram Park. The purpose of Canley Pop Up Cafes was to get people from different cultures to interact with each other in Canley and to create a community feel and hope for the future of Canley which these events have achieved. It has also made residents see students in a positive light.

The Canley Pop Up Cafés are run by local community champions led by Dr Nor Aziz who is a local resident and alumna of the University of Warwick. The café has been running for over  a year now and have been very popular with local residents with around 50 people attending each one.

Warwick Volunteers have attended the cafes and led games and craft activities supported by a groups of 10 student volunteers to help deliver these. The activities have been really popular with local residents and the students have enjoyed meeting the local community and interacting with people from different cultures and generations. They’ve also enjoyed the home cooked food (vegetarian fried noodles is the most popular dish so far!) and complimentary refreshments and cakes and many more.

Mark Hinton (University of Warwick Community Engagement Development Manager, CLL) attended the cafes,  leading volunteers to encourage residents to share common issues and concerns to help empower individuals and groups to speak out and take action on the issues that are affecting them. Mark used an interactive approach collating visitors’ responses and helped with populating feedback into spreadsheet for monitoring purpose.
