Omar Salha, Founder and CEO of Ramadan Tent Project, said the theme of this year’s Ramadan Festival was Heritage: Past, Present and Future.

“The month of Ramadan is an embodiment of the rich Islamic culture, tradition and heritage that is observed by millions across the globe as a journey of self-reflection, spiritual sustenance, and mindfulness,” he added.

Open Iftar events are taking place across the UK throughout the month, with meals at Windsor Castle and the British Library before the festival culminates with a final community meal held at London’s Trafalgar Square on 8 April.

Tufail Hussain, director at charity partner Islamic Relief, added the iftar was “welcome to everyone.”

“Coming together with the local community and sharing a meal after a day of fasting will be very special,” he added.
