PCC to deliver message of hope and togetherness at popular religious festival

Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping will deliver a poignant message of unity and togetherness as he addresses a 6,000-strong crowd at this year’s Eid religious festival.

The PCC will speak on the power of community cohesion and tolerance at the fourth annual Eid festival, hosted by Nottingham-based Muslim support charity, the Karimia Institute, on Sunday 17th June at the Forest Recreation Ground in the city.

Eid is a traditional Muslim festival which marks the end of the month of Ramadan and this particular event is the largest of its kind in Nottingham.

The festival traditionally brings people of all cultures and backgrounds together to celebrate diversity and promote positive community relationships.

Activities will include games, mehndi, fun fair rides, traditional food and face painting as well as a host of stage performances including famous nasheed artists, qawwalis, pothwari poetry and more.

The Karimia Institute has developed a Trust Building project which seeks to promote trust between British Muslims and the wider community to nurture understanding and acceptance – a key priority for the Commissioner.

The multicultural event which aims to bring people from all walks of life together runs from 12pm until 6pm and last year attracted more than 6,000 people.
