What if it rains? 

1Eid has been running for 17 years, come rain or shine the Sunnah must be upheld! We do our part to work hard for months to plan this wonderful event, and we leave the rest in the hand of Allah. May Allah grant us success and accept our effort.

Rain is a Mercy from Allah, and living in the UK if we were worried about the rain we would never leave our homes!

1Eid will have plenty of gazebos and umbrellas for all if we get a few showers but we pray to Allah He keeps the sun shining!

Why should I register?

Imagine you had invited people to your home, you would want to know how many guests were arriving so you could serve and host them well?  1Eid is run 100% by volunteers who sacrifice their Eid day in return to serve the community in seeking the pleasure of Allah.  Registering online help us know our expected numbers, how many people to cater for to ensure the event can run safely. It also means we can notify you of any important announcements or changes that happen. 

Why is there a charge?

The 1Eid event is an event run by volunteers for the community, we are not a big business or corporation. The rental of the grounds is the biggest cost of the event and the ground needs to be rented for several days to set up and break down. Therefore we request all those to attend to make a small donation to help us cover this cost so that we don’t end up in debt and continue to bring you this celebration every Eid.

We do not offer any refunds for any tickets purchased on our website or on other platforms.  We also do not offer any other types of refunds due to the nature of the event, our work and because 1Eid is mostly funded by volunteers, our families and at times sponsors.  We welcome any additional investments should you wish to earn the good deeds for the akhirah which we all should seek.
