Ramadan Tent 2016

An inspirational event to be held on the main campus of Plymouth University aims to bring together the community during the Islamic holy period of Ramadan.

Ramadan Tent is an award winning student-led project which aims to bring together the community in a spirit of sharing and communication.

During Ramadan Muslims fast between dawn and sunset and the organisers of Ramadan Tent are inviting everyone, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, to join them for free food and drink to break the fast on Friday 10 June.

The event will take place between 8.45pm and 10.45pm in Drake’s Place Garden.

A variety of cuisines will be on offer, kindly donated by local businesses including Aladdin, Aroma Woodfired Pizza, Tamar Spice, Tasty Food Express, Mesopotamia, Jazmin and Costless. Any leftover food will be donated to the city’s homeless shelters.

Local organisations have also been invited to attend the event including Devonport Life House, British Red Cross, Shekinah Mission, Hamoaze House, Broadreach House and the Plymouth Social Enterprise Network.

One of the organisers of the Ramadan Tent event in Plymouth is student Sabeela Butt who said: 

“This is a super opportunity for everyone in the community to come together, get to know each other and share in some lively conversation and excellent food. Everyone is welcome regardless of who they are, where they come from or what they believe.”
