London Celebrates Eid-al-Fitr

When is Eid al-Fitr? The festival is expected to be on or around July 17 in the UK this year, depending on the sighting of the new moon. It begins with morning prayers, followed by feasting and celebrations among family and friends. Some Muslims also celebrate the festival by wearing new clothes, giving each other gifts and decorating their homes. What is happening in Trafalgar Square? On Saturday July 25 from 12-6pm there will be a giant, multi-sensory Eid celebration in Trafalgar Square, put on by the Mayor of London. As well as Qu’ran recitations and call to prayer there will be souks, market stalls, music performances and celebrity guest appearances. Expect to taste Malaysian, Turkish, South Asian, Egyptian, Lebanese, Indonesian, and Arabic cuisine - to name just a few!
