Eid congregation for Eid-ul-Fitr was, like other years, held in Valentine’s Park, Ilford. An estimated 15,000 people gathered there to celebrate Eid ul Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan.
This is the largest open air Eid congregation in London. The celebration of this joyous and auspicious occasion brought the communities in Redbridge and surrounding areas together to enjoy Eid. It gave the congregation and the visitors of other faiths and backgrounds a wonderful opportunity to greet and share their happiness with one another. The event included exhibition on Islamic culture that was open to all. Local dignitaries attended.
