Event organisers have said that stalls are still available at the events and that volunteers are also wanted. This year, the event in Harrow will be held at Kenton Recreation Ground.
In addition to the stalls, fireworks and festivities, there is also a funfair planned for the big weekend. The festival will be fundraising for ‘Afghanistan’s very needy’ and ‘those suffering in Bangladesh’, say organisers.
The official event’s listing states “The festival aspect requires you and your family to enjoin this amazing noble cause. We need more volunteers, more funding support, and much more du’a so that next Eid we can deliver the amazing festivals 1Eid has established in many other parts of the country.
“Harrow will have 1Eid insha’Allah established by Allah’s will through your support and sincerity. Help us plan the biggest festival in 2023 by joining us this Eid for a massive beautiful prayer led by Sheikh Adil Bengalha al Maghribi, with reminders and speeches from our learned brothers.”
