Everyone is invited to a Sunday of heartwarming celebration at the Trafalgar Square. The free event is one of the best ways to usher in the new month. Every year, Londoners come together at this event so as to celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan. With entertainment from various sources and food from Middle Eastern, local and international sources, this is the event to attend. The Eid Festival will be hosted by Noreen Khan, the award-winning radio and TV presenter. That said, you can expect a fantastic atmosphere all through the event. The main stage will host performances from Cheb Nacim, Safe Adam, and other contemporary artists. If you got the chance to attend the last Shubbak Festival, then you have an idea of just how amazing these performances can be. In case you did not attend, there is no need to worry. Performers from the Shubbak festival will also be joining other traditional acts on stage for invigorating performances. At the Eid Festival, there’s something for everyone in the family. From storytellers for the children to the market where there will be wonderful jewellery and clothing on sale. Are you a fan of cooking? Then the exclusive cooking demo from award-winning chef Mahmood Ahmed is set to give your cooking skills a tweak or two. The Eid Festival starts at 12:00 p.m. and ends at 6:00 p.m. See you there!
