A popular free-to-attend Eid event in Luton is set to return this April.

1Eid will be holding the first Eid festival in the heart of Luton at St George's Square, on two dates that are estimated to be April 9 and April 10 (subject to the sighting of the moon). 1Eid first began its festivals at Stockwood Park in 2011, and has been holding a festival every year in Luton.
