Enjoy the taste of cultures

IRISH, African, Armenian and many other fascinating customs will be represented at the 65th Ipswich Multicultural Projects (IMP) International Café.

The café will be held on Saturday and is set to include a variety of cultures, a three-course meal, live entertainment and a fashion parade.

Organiser Pat Keogh said the cafés had been held for a decade and kept improving.

"This time around, we'll have a mix of everything including some African drumming workshops, Armenian dancing, poetry, magic and we'll be inviting people to come and dance with us," he said.

The three-course meal will be a tantalising mix of Irish, African and Italian.

"We will be having an African soup to start, an Irish corned beef with cabbage and tiramisu for dessert," Mr Keogh said.

"The main thing is the beautiful food so people should come hungry. We will have singing and dancing and prizes for the best cultural dress in the fashion parade too."

Dinner and entertainment cost $20 for members, $25 for non-members and children under 10 enter for free.

The International Café will be held at the Masonic Hall, cnr Roderick and Nicholas Sts, from 6.45pm.
