The first Eid Festival of its kind is being held in Bromsgrove on Saturday, 27 November, at the Council House, Burcot Lane, Bromsgrove.

The organisers say it's an opportunity to bring children and families together to meet and learn about different cultures in a fun way.

There will be Indian food, drumming workshops, an Islamic exhibition and Nasheed music by Sufi band Silk Road.

The event is free, but any money raised goes to BBC Children in Need.

Dr Waqar Azmi OBE, Chairman of the Bromsgrove Muslim Community Trust, said: "It's a family day outing, and we're delighted to have worked with Bromsgrove District Council and Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service to put the event together for the whole community to enjoy.

"We shall be recognising two local unsung heroes, who will be presented with Certificates of Commendation in recognition of the hard work, support and contributions to the community, and in helping to create a just, fair and safe society for everyone".

The event is part on National Inter Faith Week, and begins at 1030 GMT.
