Eid Festival 2017Where Christians have Christmas, Muslims have Eid - which gives you an idea of how big the celebrations are. It's certainly a major event in London - and since 2006 there has been a mass gathering in Trafalgar Square organised by the Mayor of London and Muslim groups in the capital. The free event which marks the end of Ramadan includes live music and performances, children's activities such as face-painting, henna, calligraphy and sports, plus a food festival including Malaysian, Turkish, South Asian, Egyptian, Lebanese, Indonesian and Arabic cuisine.

About Trafalgar Square

Lord Nelson, Britain's greatest military hero, and the mighty lions that surround him, pay testament to the position of Trafalgar Square at the heart of the capital, the heart of the nation, and, at one time, the heart of an empire that controlled three fifths of the world.
