Eid Street Party Eid Mubarak Candlelight Letter Blocks

Restore, The People’s Fair and The Asian Cultural Centre are hosting an Eid Street Party for hundreds in Manzil Way on Saturday 8th June! Their family fun day will be packed with lots of stalls, live music, and a food court with Fresh BBQ and Halal Food. They'll also have face painting, Henna, and Restore’s beautiful gardens to relax in!

Hundreds of people are expected to support a community festival to celebrate the end of Ramadan for fasting Muslims and raise awareness about mental health in the wider community. The People’s Fair organises celebrations of Eid with the aim of bringing communities together and the Eid Street Party will be the fourth event organised with Restore in the last twelve months, following The People’s Fair in Florence Park in June 2018, Eid al-Adha in August 2018, and an event at the Asian Cultural Centre in March 2019 to promote International Women’s Day and mental health.

Taking place at Restore’s Manzil Way recovery groups just a few hundred metres from the city’s largest mosque, Central Mosque, the event is also supported by the Asian Cultural Centre, The Free Wheeling Project, Making Music Together group, which includes Confluence, Oxford Hindu Temple, Indian Union along with M&A Social Enterprise which will be part funded by the Oxfordshire Community Foundation.

Rozeena Ali one of the organisers for The People’s Fair said, “We are really pleased to be collaborating with so many groups in and around Oxford this year. There will be something for everyone and a great way for communities to support Restore and the great work they do.”

The event will run from 11am until 5pm in Manzil way, and is free to all. The event will help to raise money for mental health recovery and Restore and Anneliese Dodds MP will be attending along with city and county councillors.

Lesley Dewhurst, Chief Executive of Restore, said: “I’m thrilled that Restore and The People’s Fair are joining forces again as part of our partnership to promote mental health awareness in Oxford’s BAME community. Mental ill health can affect everyone, but everyone affected can and does recover. This event is all about bringing communities together and raising awareness about mental health.”
