As the holy month of Ramadan comes to a close, Luton is gearing up for an epic celebration of Eid al-Fitr. Our local Muslim community is excited to share the festivities and invites everyone to join in the fun.

The start of Eid is traditionally determined by the sighting of the new moon after Ramadan. This year, Eid al-Fitr is expected to begin on Wednesday 10 April, subject to the moon sighting. Eid celebrations are set to commence on the day of Eid, with numerous events taking place across the community.

Here are the top events to enjoy in Luton this Eid-al-Fitr:
