TAL has restored the Grave of the British Born Telugu writer/poet Sir. Charles Philip Brown (CP Brown) in London and also we started TAL Cultural Centres to teach Telugu Language and fine arts to preserve our language and culture and pass it onto the next generations. We had the greatest honour of felicitating Great Grandson of Sir. Arthur Cotton who built many dams across rivers in In addition to this, TAL charity recognizes the achievements of various artists, performers and exponents and brings their works to the notice of thousands of new audiences through our most popular annual celebration on every Telugu New year day “Ugadi” in London. TAL conducts talent hunts and surveys.

Also brings out a colourful cultural souvenir “Maa Telugu” (means Our Language) every year with works from various artists, authors, writers, scientists, professionals, students, business community etc. We also encourage the artists by grandly felicitating and respecting their work by commissioning “Cultural Excellence Award” and “Life Time Achievement Award” every year. I am very pleased to say that 7 eminent people received life time achievement awards in due recognition to their dedication for the very development of the humanity and society in Britain and a total of 14 including local and international artists received Cultural excellence and appreciation awards.

Throughout the year in addition to other charitable, social, women's, sporting and youth activities TAL also provide opportunities for cultural sharing and skills development through our international arts performance and exchange program on various international stages in and around London. We support cultural practitioners, for example in the areas of music and dance, literature to have their work appreciated by others and their concerns staged and propagated at a local and global level. We are making every attempt to understand and develop projects to foster greater respect and understanding between different identities in London, particularly in the areas of education, music, dance, linguistics, sports etc. As part of our curriculum we celebrate Children's day every year on eve of the birth anniversary of India’s First Prime Minister Shri. Jawaharlal Nehru.
