Get to know us

Established back in 2007, 1Eid is the most culturally cohesive and multi-generational celebration for all members of the community to attend.  We want everybody to enjoy our festival of Eid. The word Eid means ‘to feast’ and traditionally was celebrated with the whole community regardless of faith. It was a chance to dispel and remove any social boundaries and to invite those most in need to come together and be included in a universal event where they were taken care of and served.

The aim of Eid is to come together and unite, celebrate the fabric of humanity and harmony, and to show respect for all.

By the Grace of God, 1Eid™ has successfully pioneered the revival of this celebration, whereby the whole Muslim community is able to share their festival with the wider community and celebrate togetherness in a pool of diversity, dispelling any and all avenues for prejudice.

Our growth has meant we have been able to use our platform to highlight the needs of the most deprived and neglected within our community and offer the basic needs of provisions, sustenance and education as well as bringing joy, happiness and a sense of belonging within their lives.
