Throughout the year we hold many different events. The majority of the events are free, and anyone can attend or participate regardless of their religous belief or none – and we hope to see you there, Insha’Allah.

From Bake sale to bowling, Moroccan tea night, sleepovers, planetarium visits, horse riding, trampolining, BBQ and Airspace – these are the events we organise – all appropriately fun!

Other events include socials, calligraphy, dinner parties and information evenings about Islam and its misconceptions. But also events where we can support you, such as academic revision sessions, Sisters’ and Brothers’ Circle, Friday prayer and committee feedback events.

See below for some of the weekly and annual events we hold – and see our calendar on the right for the lastest events.
